Gaining Ground

341 Virginia Road
Concord, MA 01742

Join us as we revive this in-person non sibi project with Gaining Ground - a non-profit farm that aims to grow community alongside organic produce. 100% of the food grown at Gaining Ground is donated to local hunger relief organizations - in 2020 this resulted in about 127,000 pounds of food.

Volunteers will take part in spreading compost and mulches to enrich the soil, transplanting seedlings from the greenhouse out into the fields, and maintenance of perennial hedgerows, among other tasks. Children ages 5 and up are welcomed to participate when accompanied by a parent or guardian.

This project will take place outside.
Please dress appropriately for the weather and farm work.
Please review Gaining Grounds' volunteer guidelines here.


Kindly RSVP here or contact Crystal McGuire in the Office of Alumni Engagement.

In consideration of the health and safety of our Andover community, we ask that attendees be fully vaccinated and wear masks for indoor events. Please note, the Academy considers fully vaccinated to include a booster dose. We will require all attendees to adhere to the public health guidelines established by the CDC and your state and local health officials, as well as to follow venue guidelines and regulations that are in place at the time of the event. Prior to attending, we ask that you monitor your health. If you are feeling unwell, please plan to stay home. In the spirit of non sibi, the Academy trusts that those in attendance will follow these guidelines.
