The Ground Work Get Local Party

Get ready for an interactive celebration of community connection! Meet us at The Little Fleet for local eats, live music by The Go Rounds, and pick up a Get Local Passport for all-ages activities designed to inspire!

Five activities shine the light on local farms, food, transportation, clean energy, and northwest Michigan's vibrant cities. Envision your city with local artist Brianne Farley at the Wall of Opportunity. Plant seeds with Carter's Compost and BARC compostables. Make a solar lantern, and learn about farm to school as you thread your own seed bracelet. For every activity you have fun participating in, collect a sticker in your passport. Collect all 5 and receive a free raffle ticket for your chance to win prizes from local businesses!

Fresh from the food trucks, share homegrown dishes featuring sustainably foraged foods—a reflection of Groundwork's commitment to getting more locally grown food into schools and institutions. 

When the sun sets, light up the night with your solar lantern, and dance the night away to the rollicking music of The Go Rounds! Bring your friends, bring your family, and discover how you can make a difference by connecting to community.
