Members of Common Ground’s staff and faculty work hard and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Common Ground grows nearly 10,000 lbs of fresh produce annually, including vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers. We also raise broiler and laying hens, ducks, sheep and a goat. Farm products go to our Cafeteria, onsite farm stand, Spring and Fall CG Family CSA, the CG/Cityseed Mobile Market, and local restaurants. Farm work will be done with the Farm Director and Assistant Farm Manager, caring for the farm through the growing season. You will gain experience in all aspects of planting, growing, and maintaining a diversified sustainable vegetable operation, and small scale livestock management. Specific farm tasks may include planting, weeding, watering, harvesting, preparing for market, maintaining irrigation, keeping crop records, caring for farm animals and a variety of other tasks.
