CommonGround is a group of women farmers who plant seeds of trust through conversations with consumers about the food they grow.
Those women are celebrating ten years of service and impact for agriculture.
The farmers of CommonGround serve as a resource to connect with families about food and farming.
The organization’s farmers volunteer their time to share personal experiences, as well as science and research, to help consumers sort through the myths and misinformation surrounding food.
What first began as a handful of volunteers with a shared goal has flourished, growing into a grassroots movement with more than 200 volunteers in 20 states.
“I’m proud to be part of something so authentic in this crazy world,” says Lauren Biegler, a CommonGround farmer-volunteer from Minnesota.
“All of the women in the program have such genuine love and pride for their families, farms, and the products that come off their farms.”
CommonGround was developed by the National Corn Growers Association, in collaboration with various state corn and soy associations.
Though ten years have gone by, the mission remains the same; break the barriers between farmers and consumers through direct conversations.
