The Common Acre produces public programs at the intersection of earth and art. Following the example of Wendell Berry, Will Allen, and Jane Jacobs, we link the vitality of a community to its relationship with the land. With work in urban gardens and arts venues alike, we aim to cultivate engaged, inspired, and fruitful communities.

The fest happens in 100 days and you can get your group in front of the largest gathering of bioregional poets in history.
