    "My Home Away from Home"

      August 2018

      I was lucky to discover Groundwork shortly after I moved to New Bedford, and with it I found a community. Not only were the members welcoming, but they are a microcosm of New Bedford as a whole. I seldom attend an event in the city without seeing someone I know from Groundwork. They are very plugged in! In fact, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Groundwork members help keep New Bedford moving forward. It is also a great space to work in: high ceilings, large windows, comfy chairs, and original artwork. The members are friendly, but they respect your boundaries when you're working. The owners/managers also care about the members. There are regular town hall meetings where members' opinions are solicited. We're even asked our preferences for food and beverages! There are also frequent events for members and non-members, including workshops, networking events, potlucks, and gallery openings.

      "coworking without community is just working. Coworking without Community is Just Working*"

        July 2018

        Great design, lots of air and light, good coffee and wifi, and all that. Just happens to be located in the economic development and entrepreneur support hub of New Bedford. Upstairs, there’s an alphabet soup of boards and commissions and offices ready and waiting to help you move forward. OK, so far just like Starbucks. Except for the people - the community you’re part of. All busy bees doin’ what they’re doin’. But – have a question on IoT, crypto, commercial/residential development, full stack (pancakes or web dev), running a retail shop or a tree-hugger program – just sit down in the kitchen and chat for a few. Yes, the people- people who care about the space and their neighbors. Oh, and did I mention the art gallery…? *Thanks to Cat Johnson for the title

        "The right connection"

          July 2018

          When I first started going to Groundwork!, I knew few people in New Bedford. Within a very short amount of time, I felt I was plugged into a terrific community. From this base, I have established a solid writing career in the area and am never sort of material. I simply look around me and find interesting people doing interesting things every day. It's my pleasure to report on the various ways our members are moving the city and region forward. Some are doing this through dynamic businesses. Others through social leadership. And, through the arts. Because of this environment, I not only practice journalism, but what we all preach - community building - and have enjoyed pursuing new projects in the city of my own, all made possible by the network of colleagues and friends found at Groundwork!

          5 Thank Steven

          "Quiet place to work, good coffee - professionals to connect with"

            July 2018

            I go to Groundwork about once a week for an extra office space. There are sitdown and stand up desks, and lots of good sunlight. AC works now. Parking is ok, sometimes you gotta look twice - but once you get the hang of it, never more than a block or two. I ride a bike often and there are a couple of bike rack spots out front. Have been able to partners with others here to work on my company's projects. People working here are well connected within the local community. WiFi works well. Coffee for free. Plus snacks.

            4 Thank John
