A brief description of the garden:

Common Ground Garden is a CSA on St. Bens’ campus. It strives to provide high quality fruits and vegetables to its members while also creating a sense of community. The garden provides students a chance for education and illustration of the benefits of sustainability. Students are encouraged to volunteer here and are often hired as workers, especially during the busy summer months.
