Groundwork’s annual farm-to-table fundraiser brings friends, neighbors and farmers together to honor our extraordinary local food movement and celebrate solutions that support environment, economy and community.
In 2021, however, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone the dinner event until 2022 and shift our energies to our annual online Harvest Auction. Join us October 3 thru 9pm, October 9, 2021 for a chance to bid on an irresistible and eclectic collection of items, from getaways to handcrafted chocolate, with all of your proceeds going to support the Groundwork mission. Look for the return of Harvest at the Commons in October 2022, in all of its community-spirited, great food and dance music glory!

On this Thanksgiving Day, join us in sending a heartfelt thank-you to Kim Pontius, CEO of Traverse Area Association of Realtors and Groundwork 2018 Milliken Award recipient. We ask him to reflect on the Grand Vision, a planning effort he played a big role in, now that nearly a decade has passed since its completion.
Simon Joseph signed on for a fifth stint as Harvest Dinner’s head chef. He shares memories and thoughts on the spirit of the event.
