Wichita's Common Ground Producers and Growers is unique in that it delivers fresh organic produce to senior centers, senior high-rises and mixed multiple high rises with seniors and the disabled. By the end of 2014, the year the farm began delivering, they served 11 senior centers and residences. Since then, they’ve grown to 29, and the list of centers asking to be included keeps growing as well.
The farm has about five acres under cultivation, with pumpkin, acorn and butternut squash, zucchini, collard greens, spinach and purple hull peas—a Southern specialty similar to black-eyed peas.
