Organization Profile

The Common Acre


The Common Acre restores relationships between people and the land through ecology, agriculture, community, and art.

We work with communities and public agencies to revive marginalized land through collaborative restoration and agroecology. By nurturing a network of urban farms and restoring native plant and pollinator habitat, community members grow their own produce, gain access to training, and activate shared green space; work that, by its nature, strengthens bonds to each other and to the land.
