Grand Opening – Groundswell Cafe, Coworking & Events Space

Monday, October 8
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM

We’re excited to be launching our new Groundswell Cafe: A Pay-it-Forward Eatery, and Groundswell Coworking & Events Space!

We will have a ribbon cutting on Monday, October 8th, at 9:00 AM. There will be door prizes throughout the day, so stop by for some coffee or lunch and take a tour of the beautiful coworking space! The cafe will be open from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and the coworking space will be open until 5:00 PM.

About the Cafe

Our simple plant-based menu features delicious soups, salads, and sandwiches, with as much of the food as possible supplied by what we grow less than a mile away on our Cultivate Hope Urban Farm and in our on-site hydroponic system. At this cafe, guests can round up their bill or make a donation to help pay for a meal for someone who can’t afford it. Those who can’t afford to pay will be able to order and enjoy our super-fresh, healthy food at no cost.

About the Coworking Space

This is a shared workspace for location-independent workers, such as entrepreneurs, freelancers, independent consultants, and creative professionals. It’s a community-driven space that promotes collaboration and creativity, and it provides a unique “green” coworking environment with two “living walls” and an indoor garden. We offer a Groundswell for Good 20% discount for qualifying organizations whose business model is good for the global community.

About the Event Space

On evenings and weekends the Groundswell Café will host various concerts, performances, and other events. Both the café and the coworking space are available to rent for your next function. All of the furniture in the coworking space is easily movable, so we can modify the space to fit just about any kind of event.
