  • “My favorite product that Common Ground offers is their wonderful selection of “Vegetable Seeds”. Common Ground works very hard to have an excellent variety and supply of vegetable seeds that will yield plants that grow extremely well in the Bay Area. I have bought these seeds every year for twenty years and find them to be invaluable.”
