Common Ground is located within New Haven city limits, a half mile from Southern Connecticut State University. Our site includes 20 acres of city park land, surrounded by West Rock Ridge State Park.
Transportation is provided for New Haven students through CT Transit buses; students are provided passes so that they can travel to and from school for free. The school line is on the B line. Get bus information.
Visiting Common Ground
You are welcome here. This is your place.
Common Ground’s campus is open to the public every Saturday, 10-2, between the start of April and Thanksgiving. We also welcome community members to join us at our events and community programs.
Common Ground welcomes visitors from other schools and organizations interested in learning about our work. If you are interested in scheduling a visit to Common Ground, contact Joel Tolman, Director of Impact & Engagement, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because hosting visitors takes staff time and resources, we ask that visitors give back by (1) sharing a written reflection on their experience, (2) making a donation to support our work, and/or (3) returning during a volunteer work day on the farm.
