1.19.21 Growing Greens & Nutrition Mission

Greenhouse Growing

Our winter crop of plants are off to an amazing start in the greenhouse.  Over winter break we were able to gift greens and/or basil plants to over fifty families through the School District of La Crosse’s meal distribution. Here’s to a healthy start to the new year!
Nutrition Mission

Dietetic Intern, Zayna is taking students on a six week Nutrition Mission.  Students at GROW schools take a weekly mission to learn about the nutrients in their foods.  More specifically, they are learning about the value of some of the foods we are growing in the greenhouse right now!  Many of these greens can be added to simple recipes you can make at home.  

Each week the recipes taught are added to our website for your enjoyment.  We would love to see your creations.  If you make any of the recipes please share to our Facebook page or share on your own page with the hashtag  #GROWNutritionMission2021.  
Thank You, Coulee Parenting Connection & Kujak Orthodontics

GROW was one of the fortunate area non-profits to be featured in Coulee Parenting Connection’s special COVID edition.  One-hundred percent of the proceeds from this edition were given back to the featured organizations.  Recently, we were presented with a $1,000 check to help us carry out our mission.  We are so grateful to Kujak Orthodontics for nominating us and for their role in supporting us and our community. We are also so appreciative of Coulee Parenting Connection for recognizing the important work that non-profits carry out to make our community a richer place to live.
