Who is CGC?

Founded in 2017, Common Ground Collective (CGC) is a Maui-based non-profit organization that is working hard to promote food security and economic opportunity through education and capacity-building assistance. To accomplish its mission, normally CGC provides harvesting and administrative services to agricultural landowners. CGC’s services aim to fill gaps in the agricultural sector by increasing farm productivity through the use of regenerative farming practices and effectively pairing landowners of underutilized agricultural land with the resources necessary to put the land into production.
