Our Mission

 Common Knowledge believes that the disconnection of shared knowledge about what thrives along our foot path is at the root of cultural and environmental degradation. Our goal is to promote the importance of reestablishing reciprocity with plant species found within the urban domain so that we can cultivate a stronger foundation on which we stand. We propagate these intentions through collaboration, guided plant tours and workshops and through our activity-based educational tools. Whether these species were or still are used as medicine, food, dye, cordage or building material CK is a platform for sharing cross-cultural information about how we have lived symbiotically with these green allies throughout the centuries. Common plants and their incredible virtues should once again be part of common knowledge. This endeavor currently focus on plants found within the urban landscapes of the Northeastern United States.
