Farmers offer an important perspective on our food.

But not everyone has the opportunity to talk directly with a farmer or visit a farm. Now is your chance to change that.

play 'Moms Night Out'

CommonGround Minnesota’s events provide guests with the opportunity to meet some of the Minnesota farmers growing and raising our food.

Throughout the evening guests enjoy engaging conversation, delicious food and drinks, and (in some instances) even the opportunity to tour a Minnesota farm.

Join CommonGround Minnesota for an open house on Thursday, September 16 from 5-8 pm at Schram Vineyards in Waconia.

Throughout the evening guests will have the opportunity to meet some of the women farmers from right here in our state that grow and raise your food. Hors d’oeuvres from a local eatery, hand-crafted wines made right on-site at Schram Vineyards, engaging conversation and fun giveaways are just some of what guests can expect. Guests will also have the option to take part in “Vine to Wine” tours during the evening; the tours are offered first come, first served and registration will be available on-site.

All ticket proceeds benefit Second Harvest Heartland and its mission to fight hunger in the Twin Cities and across Greater Minnesota. Helping our neighbors is more important than ever before; 1 in 8 Minnesotans – including 1 in 5 kids – are now facing hunger.
