Common Ground Worldwide is a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, dedicated to:
promoting world peace by bringing together people of diverse cultures, religions, backgrounds, and viewpoints
providing interfaith spiritual support to those in need
engaging in both local and global humanitarian outreach efforts
Our newest project:
The Giving Garden
The Giving Garden will be a community gathering place and public food garden in the city of Paso Robles, CA, where people can grow their own produce, have space to meet with others, hold and attend workshops, or simply relax in a peaceful environment.
The garden will be a hub for education and skill-sharing about how to live in harmony both with the planet and with one another. In addition to providing training in food production and other skills for self reliance, the garden will also be a center for nonviolent communication and conflict resolution, with regular classes and onsite volunteer mediators to help people resolve disputes and heal relationships.
The Giving Garden will operate on a donation basis, providing opportunities for local people of all socioeconomic backgrounds to participate and to enact their own visions and projects as well.
The original Giving Garden in Paso Robles, CA, may even spur a global movement. Imagine if someday every town and city has a similar place where people can gather freely, grow and harvest their own food, and find support to meet needs without violence!
