If you’re reading this, you are probably a supporter. If you are not, you can become one and know that these thanks are for you too!
Looking back over a crazy year for the environment and for education, your support was an important anchor keeping Common Ground safe and sane. Your gift meant Natureyear kids learned from the seasons – building snow forts, investigating bee behavior, and growing food.
You helped us expand a Schoolyards program to 19 New Haven Public Schools. You helped young people develop passions for environmental science, and social justice, and community building – through real-world projects. You helped New Haven young people see that they matter. You are making it possible for a community re-design of what a real, authentic living public school education looks like – preparing our community’s future leaders. Read your Gratitude Report for more stories. And thank you!
