Why did Uncommon Ground (Owner #200) join Wild Onion Market? “We joined the co-op because, when I found about it, I got very excited at the prospect of having a community-owned grocery in my neighborhood focused on providing great products--local, sustainable, organic with people working together to provide health, happiness, nutrition and a local economy where we can enjoy our shopping experience, meet neighbors, and get involved.” The vision at Uncommon Ground is “Nourish Community, Nurture Nature.” Starting over 25 years ago with a coffeehouse in Lakeview, founders Michael and Helen Cameron have helped drive the “farm to table” movement in Chicago. With two locations, they have the first certified organic rooftop farm in the country, and the first certified organic brewery, Greenstar Brewing, in the state of Illinois. They work with local farmers and producers that share their passion for organic and sustainable ingredients, and operate their ecologically conscious restaurants with sustainability as a guidepost. They also work to support their communities through partnerships, fundraising, live music and local artist showings. With an outdoor beer garden complete with tents, heaters and fire tables, Uncommon Ground has outdoor access year-round. Learn more online: Website, www.uncommonground.com Facebook, Uncommon Ground Edgewater, Uncommon Ground Lakeview, Greenstar Brewing Instagram, @uncommongroundchi Support a more sustainable food system, one that puts people and the planet before profit.
