What’s CG Foundation?

CG Foundation is the non-profit arm of Common Ground and aims to further the development of agriculture, arts and education in Hawaiʻi.

Kaua`i County’s General Plan states that agriculture represents our greatest opportunity for economic diversity and food sufficiency and is important to our island’s identity as a rural place. Yet despite efforts to boost agriculture production in Hawaii, traditional agricultural crops have declined 43% in the past 2 decades.  In addition, farmers need expanded and dependable markets to sell more niche crops and to increase the crop price per acre. 

The CG Foundation addresses both needs by accelerating the growth trajectory of Kaua`i-made food and beverage companies and expanding the market for farmers’ niche crops.  The pandemic reinforced the need to diversify our economy, build more resilience in our food supply chain and underscored the vital importance of small business development for Kaua`i and our neighbor islands.
