What is Common Ground?

The Common Ground Workshop Series develops partnerships with gardeners and all other community members, in order to procure donations of seasonal, organic produce for Elijah’s Promise. This serves to alleviate hunger through community programs such as the Soup Kitchen and Meals on Wheels. In exchange donors will receive culinary workshops on food preparation, knife skills, canning, nutrition, wine pairing and more from volunteer chef instructors from Elijah’s Promise.
