Join a Committee
A significant amount of Common Ground Farm’s activities are driven through our permanent and ad hoc committees which are composed of volunteer members working collaboratively with our board and staff.
To join a committee, email firstname.lastname@example.org
The committee is dedicated to working within our community to bring healthy food to those who need it, regardless of income, mobility or other barriers to access. We do that by donating food directly to the food pantry and by subsidizing the cost of produce through our Fair Share program. We also bring reduced priced produce directly to the community through Common Greens, a mobile market run by local teens, in partnership with the Green Teen Community Gardening Program. Through our partnership with the Green Teens we work with local youth who, through the real work of farming, marketing and food justice outreach, build skills and knowledge about a sustainable food system.
Members of the Programming Committee also work with our Education Director to put together an exciting line up of programs for children and adults. In addition to volunteers for the Committee, we are also looking for experts in various aspects of canning and home gardening. Contact Sember Weinman, Education Director, if you have these skills and want to share them.
Our Development Committee supports the work of the Farm through fund development activities, including but not limited to, writing grants, securing in-kind and individual donations, coordinating fundraising projects and outreach events, and organizing our summer, fall, and winter fundraising events.
Communications & Marketing Committee
Our Communications Committee maintains efficient communications with our members and works with other committees to promote and market Common Ground Farm's efforts, including but not limited to the following: distribute email, web site maintenance, creation of annual report, coordination and distribution of Newsletter, oversee social media efforts, coordinate and assist with outreach to the press, and oversee creation of posters and Farm brochures.
