Common Ground Site for Uncommon Garden
Volunteers work on the community garden at Common Ground Christian Church in Tampa, FL.

A few weeks ago, Common Ground Christian Church (Tampa, FL) broke ground on its new community garden. Urban Farming and Kraft Foods’ Triscuit brand are sponsoring the garden, providing all the soil, plants, tools, and other supplies; the organizations are collaborating to plant 65 of these gardens around the country this year.

The groups kicked off the groundbreaking with a press release and live simulcast of the event, including connections to Triscuit’s headquarters in New York and a new garden in Los Angeles.

Common Ground’s “Green Team” of volunteers will care for the garden, and the church plans to partner with local agencies to distribute fresh produce to needy families at no charge.
