Since 1977, volunteers of the Common Ground Garden Program have helped 
low-income and limited-resource county residents to grow and eat more 
nutritious vegetables and fruits.  Programs include Master Gardener 
volunteers (seasonal gardening presentations) and Fresh From The Garden 
volunteers (simple nutrition and food safety presentations).  We work 
primarily with community gardens, school gardens, seniors, and homeless and 
battered women's shelters.
