Mission Statement
The Common Ground Garden Program, part of University of California Cooperative Extension in Los Angeles County, helps residents to garden, compost, grow their own food, and handle and preserve their food safely. Our targeted audience and priority are to serve low-income residents and those traditionally excluded, marginalized, or underrepresented in our programs.

The goals of Common Ground are to improve nutrition; increase access to fresh, low-cost produce; educate people about gardening, build bridges between neighbors and communities; help create employment opportunities; and generally make Los Angeles cleaner and greener.

Common Ground also strives to promote good natural resource management as it pertains to gardening. We show our audience how to conserve water, recycle kitchen and garden waste, and implement sustainable and environmentally safe pest control practices in the garden.

To achieve these goals, Common Ground helps to create and nurture community and school gardens, composting and garden demonstration sites, job-training programs in horticulture, and community-owned horticultural businesses.

Our work is powered by our UC Master Gardener volunteers! In 2011, 236 Master Gardeners volunteered 14,909 hours, serving 132,363 low-income gardeners in Los Angeles County at 271 locations:  97 community gardens, 106 school gardens, 16 homeless and battered-women's shelters, 9 senior gardens, and 43 fairs and farmers markets.
