Common Ground Retreat at Prairie Farm depends entirely upon the generosity of the community. The operation, ongoing maintenance, and new development of this beautiful resource is made possible by gifts of time and money from those who are inspired by the vision and find joy in offering the resources to make it happen. If you would like to contribute, you can:

  • Make a one-time or recurring donation using our donation form here. Be sure to type “Prairie Farm” in the “Teacher/Fund” field.
  • Leave a check in the donation box at Common Ground in Minneapolis or at the retreat property. Please write “Prairie Farm” on the memo line.
  • Make a pledge to support ongoing development by contacting Gail Iverson at and ask her to send you a pledge form.
  • Volunteer! Send an email to and request to be added to the Prairie Farm volunteers email list. This is the best way to find out about volunteer opportunities, current needs, and scheduled work days.
