Team

The Evolving Common Ground Collective.

Cass Hazel

I have 12 years of experience with landscaping, horticulture and construction. I ran a successful horticulture business for 3 years prior to Common Ground. Now, with Common Ground I have expanded the boundaries of what I once thought was possible. We've taken on larger and more complex projects projects and utilized whole systems design to do so. My adult life has consisted of seeking knowledge and hands-on skills. I’ve also invested time building off-grid homesteads and my own cordwood masonry cabin. During the summer of 2019, I completed a PDC (Permaculture Design Course) and ATC (Appropriate Technology Course) in the mountains of Montana, where I met my wife Taylor. Certifications: -Master composter -Irrigation tech & design -Drainage solutions -Natural stone hardscaping -Permaculture design -Appropriate technologies

Taylor Hazel

Two of my roles within Common Ground are designing outdoor spaces and connecting with clients. Ecological landscaping, connecting a landscape with the surrounding environment, is the focus of my design and install work. I have 4+ years of experience in the field, getting my hands dirty and learning the blue collar ways. I love being able to bring spaces to life for residential and commercial projects.

Wes Corman

An advocate of using technology and marketing as a means for positive change, I'm an experienced Web Developer and always learning more about how to communicate big ideas. I consider myself a budding student of nature as I learn more about its innate intelligence and ability to heal if given the chance.

Maya Hazel

Curious, energetic and loving, Maya is an irreplaceable member of the team. She can often be found on the worksite lounging in the shade and supervising the crew.

Daemond Hazelwanter

I grew up building and got my start in construction as soon as I could. Since 2019, I've been working with Common Ground on most of their projects. I'm the equipment operator and specialist for all things carpentry. From raised beds to decks, I can build it. I love leading & learning new skills.

Kylie Simone

I joined Common Ground in 2022 & am now a garden lead in training. Planting & connecting with the Earth has shown me part of my purpose. I love creating beautiful gardens and helping others learn about the value of plants. You will usually find me outside or with a book by the fire. I love learning new things and spreading kindness wherever I go.
