Associated with each Groove Account/Identity is a set of shared spaces. To get the current spaces for an account identity you need to construct an IdentityURI and then use the GrooveSpaces web service. This will return an array of Spaces.

The Nonce is changed every time Groove is started. See this page for how to get the current Nonce.

Private Sub GetSpaces(ByVal IdentityURI As StringByVal SpacesURI As String)
        Me.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor
        Dim gSpaces As New gwsSpaces.GrooveSpaces()
        Dim mySpaces() As gwsSpaces.Space
        Dim numLocalSpaces, numOtherSpaces, numContacts As Integer

        With gSpaces
            .GrooveHeaderValue = New gwsSpaces.GrooveHeader()
            .GrooveHeaderValue.GrooveNonce = gwsNonce()
            .GrooveHeaderValue.GrooveIdentityURL = IdentityURI

            .Url = gwsHost & SpacesURI
        End With
            mySpaces = gSpaces.Read
        Catch ex As Exception
            Me.Cursor = Cursors.Default
        End Try
        'Your code here to work with the spaces
