GROW is a nonprofit with a mission to connect youth to healthy food and nature through hands-on seed to table garden education to nourish growing minds and bodies.

During this unprecedented year we have found innovative ways to continue this important work. We have been able to:
• engage nearly 70 families in a Spring Kids Cooking Challenge (the fall challenge is currently underway)
• offer weekly open garden exploration opportunities throughout the summer
• host 180 students at farm camp - free of charge
• provide over 2000 students with three spring and three fall garden lessons
• grow and share over 1,100 pounds of produce with students and families

This year of reconnecting has been refreshing and meaningful.

“Both of my girls were lucky enough to experience GROW programming all through elementary school. Now that one is in high school, the impacts of those garden and farm experiences are shining through in her interests in solar-powered schools, sustainable agriculture, and personal health. I am forever grateful for the opportunities created by GROW educators. Sometimes it is difficult to measure the effect of education and experiences on our kids, but I can say that GROW programming helped shape our kids into awesome people who are empowered to care for themselves, each other, and the ecosystems that support them.” - Jennifer Klein, GROW Board of Directors President

When GROW started with one garden site in 2012 we hoped to continue to serve more children. And that we have done. The ways we have served our community in our 9th year have been remarkable.

Thank you for being a part of growing our mission!

It is only through generous giving from donors like you that we are able to provide students with unique learning opportunities. With the support of our community and the addition of our greenhouse space we look forward to expanding seed to table programming and growing local fresh food year round. Please consider donating to quality hands-on garden lessons, farm, and urban greenhouse experiences.

Your donation will make an impact on the lives of the youth we serve.

Thank you from all of us at GROW and the students who will experience a connection to healthy food and nature because of your generosity.
