Nothing beats supporting innovative projects that inspire people and places to thrive. Here's what Groundwork members are making possible today: 

  • more healthy and locally grown food in school cafeterias across Michigan
  • more renewable energy and policy improvement for Michigan's future
  • advocating for a shut down on Line 5 to protect our economy and the Great Lakes from an oil spill
  • connecting the dots between healthcare, wellness, and locally grown food
  • laying the groundwork for passenger rail to make a comeback—are you ready to ride that train?


  • First-rate communications 
  • Opportunities to take action, get involved, and volunteer
  • A free subscription to Taste the Local Difference® Guide to Local Food
  • First access to tickets to Groundwork events
  • Discounts at featured local businesses
