Groundswell Community Farm believes in being a positive force in the community. Some of our current projects, partnerships and events include:

  • Donating produce left after CSA or farmers’ market to local food pantries.
  • In 2017 we hosted a number of community groups to include Meijer Gardens, Elementary School teaching events, and farm tours.
  • Partnering with the GVSU Sustainable Agriculture Project to help students learn about organic vegetable farming
  • Partnering with Black River School to host a 2-week “Earth School” for students in late May 2017. This year we planted squash and set up our tomato fields!
  • Speaking about farming at MSU Organic Farming Training Program, Calvin’s Peaceable Kingdom course, KVCC Sustainable Farming course and other local college

Farming in such a way that is environmental, socially and economically viable.

  • Offering farmworkers fair wages, diverse experience, and good working conditions
  • We grow certified organic produce, cover crop to maintain our rich muck soil quality, and are continuing to strive to a become a minimal tillage farm.
  • A transparent food system.
  • Buying locally means your supporting a local family and getting a higher quality of food both in taste and nutrition value!
  • Offering discounts for low-income CSA members and farmer’s market customers who receive food assistance.
  • Accepting EBT, WIC, Project Fresh and Senior Project Fresh at farmer’s market and as CSA payments at the Fulton St. Market in Grand Rapids.
