CT Schoolyards Program

The CT Schoolyards Program of Common Ground supports the creation and effective use of school gardens, schoolyard habitats, and outdoor classrooms in schools. We believe that by using our knowledge and resources to provide professional and technical support, we can help schools realize the full potential of teaching outside in deepening the academic and emotional learning of their students.

In New Haven, we currently partner with 22 New Haven Public Schools to provide a full suite of services including design support, professional development, co-teaching and time with our CT Schoolyards Green Jobs Corps Crew. Additionally, we provide training for school districts and non-profit organizations statewide and we are founding members of the CT School Garden Alliance.
