Michael Cameron founded uncommon ground with his wife Helen in 1991. Since that time, the two of them have been driving the farm to table movement gently encouraging guests & community to become more aware & involved in the good food movement. Today, you can find Michael running between greenstar brewing (the first certified organic brewery in Illinois) & uncommon ground Lakeview checking on tables, pouring beer & overseeing the uncommon ground mission.
