General info

Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities (formerly Michigan Land Use Institute) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with office locations in Traverse City and Petoskey, Michigan, but our reach is statewide. With roots firmly embedded in the pro-health, pro-environment, and pro-economy principles of a local food system, the Groundwork Food and Farming team creates markets for local farmers, and helps connect locally grown food to school children, food pantry clients and families across the state. While much of our work begins locally in northwest lower Michigan, one of our guiding missions is to inspire a statewide culture of healthy, locally raised food. Our Food & Farming program areas include 10 Cents a Meal for Michigan Kids & Farms, Farms, Food & Health; Farm to School; FoodCorps; Food Access; Farmer Support; and Building Resilient Communities.
