Common Ground for Common Good

Mondays at 4:44pm & 6:44pm, Tuesdays at 6:45a & 7:45am

Common Ground for Common Good is a public awareness collaboration that was initiated by North Valley Community Foundation. It's now the name of a series on North State Public Radio in partnership with both NVCF and Shasta Regional Community Foundation. The program highlights grassroots methods to simple solutions to complex, compelling challenges.

Each week you'll hear from community members working hard to make things just a little bit better.

Our previous Common Ground for Common Good series can be found here. Our theme song is "Optimist" by Zoe Keating
