11.25.2020 Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at GROW.  In the midst of a year to remember we find we have so much to be thankful for.  Just a few of the things include: bountiful harvests, dedicated volunteers, new garden spaces, the many reasons children love our lessons, cultural connection guest speakers, and so much more.  

We are thankful for your part in supporting our mission to connect children to healthy food and nature!
Kids Cooking Challenge

We are preparing the Mystery Ingredient Bags for the Kids Cooking Challenge participants.  Sign up for the event is now closed.  The response was fantastic!  We can’t wait to see the ways young chefs get creative in their kitchens with their own unique recipes.  

Remember the Mystery Bag pick up is from 3 to 6 pm, December 1st, at 624 Vine Street, La Crosse.  This will be a contact-free drive up event for those who have already registered.
