Community Support

GROW is only able to connect children to healthy food and nature through the involved commitment of our community to support this mission.  Staff and board members are grateful to recognize the following for supporting our work:

Farm 2 School

Coulee Region Farm2School (CRF2S) works collaboratively with Grow on school garden efforts in the La Crosse School District. School gardens are an important component of a comprehensive farm to school program, and directly support the CRF2S vision: Coulee Region Farm2School strives to offer all Coulee Region students access to fresh, locally grown foods and educational experiences that foster understanding of where their food comes from and how their food choices impact their bodies, the environment and their community. Farm2School links lunchrooms, classrooms, farms and gardens to benefit students, schools, local farmers and our community.
