Common Groundz Community Café
Common Groundz is a community café supporting people in need in Lalor Park, with an emphasis on building relationships, while delivering great coffee and ‘baked on premises’ food.
Common Groundz is a not for profit community cafe, committed to partnerships and projects that serve the Lalor Park community.
Since its inception, Common Groundz has been shaped as a social enterprise, with its key strategy as a training space for locals (primarily but not excluding) people to become volunteers, receiving café skills training and work experience. This has empowered many who would otherwise not be given potential opportunities to learn and be part of a team. Common Groundz has birthed wonderful initiatives as the ‘Lalor Park Community Garden’, and has been the impetus for many community projects (such as mural art engagements), events (such as the Lalor Park ANZAC Dawn Service), and programs (such as our ‘cafe skills’ course in partnership with TAFE Nirimba).
