$305,000 Raised for Our Homeless Neighbors

Common Grounds Farm Stand was founded in 2009 among good friends and dedicated volunteers of the Urban Ministry Center. We’re taking this one last opportunity to thank the volunteer leadership, worker bees, partners, bakers, and shoppers for their efforts and wish them well in their next endeavors.

Together, they built something amazing: a summer market that offered high quality produce, flowers and baked goods, a great community, and impressive funding to help Charlotte’s neighbors experiencing homelessness. In fact, in seven years they contributed over $305,000 to the Urban Ministry Center, meeting their mission of cultivating abundance!

A loss of location and time created a natural ending to a really lovely community effort. Those volunteers have graciously turned over the Common Grounds Farm Stand logo and brand to the Urban Ministry Center.  We hope if you’ve found this site, you might also take a moment to connect with Urban Ministry Center and see how you can make difference.
