Year End Goal Met!

Thanks to the support of the community our year-end-fundraising goals were met.  The generous $5,000 matching fund created by a team of past and present GROW board and founding members was fully matched by individual donations for a total amount raised of $10,410!  These funds will launch us into 2023 as we work to meet the needs of the youth we serve.

We are excited to be offering field trips to our state-of-the-art greenhouse again this winter featuring:

Intern Spotlight

Our robust internship program provides resources we could not offer to the schools and students we work with on our own.  In 2022 our interns volunteered a total of 1,777 hours to help carry out the work of garden maintenance, program planning, teaching, event planning and so much more.  These future community leaders are already making such a positive impact through their dedicated work.

We are excited to start off the spring semester by welcoming back Kiara.  Kiara was a nutrition and sustainability education intern with us during the fall semester. She is currently working on completing her Public Health and Community Health Education degree from UW-La Crosse.  As part of her program she will be working with us as a full time preceptee for the entire spring semester.

Kiara has a gift for connecting with students, a drive to learn more about all aspects of how a non-profit works and an eagerness to make a positive impact on the health and nutrition of children.
