Common Ground Garden
as an institution was shut down in September 2018. The sponsoring group, Ecology Action of the Mid-Peninsula still operates. Common Ground Palo Alto, its management of the demonstration garden at 687 Arastradero Road, Palo Alto, its classes, and the July Common Ground Edible Garden Tour will be sorely missed.

Ecology Action has kindly permitted me to re-publish the Common Ground Palo Alto Growing Chart with the following notice: "The chart is probably good for most parts of Atherton, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, East Palo Alto, Mountain View, Redwood City, Stanford, Sunnyvale, and some of Los Altos, The chart is not good for San Francisco and many parts of the San Francisco Peninsula."

Native Again Landscaping
has many online resources including a nurseries list.
