Connecting children to healthy food and nature
2019 Annual Campaign Goal Met!
We are grateful to announce that GROW has met our 2019 Annual Campaign goal!

Thank you so much for all of your support throughout last year. Your support means that we are able to continue thrive as we serve the community by offering high quality school garden lessons and farm experiences for children.

On GivingTuesday, December 3rd, 2019, Facebook agreed to match a portion of the proceeds donated. 
We have been notified that Facebook has matched $1,000 of our donations!

Thank you again from all of us at GROW.  We are excited to bring on 2020.
 Winter Produce
Did you know that hoop houses extend the natural growing seasons of fruits and vegetables?  Just like our hoop house at State Road Elementary! 

Even with a hoop house, in our coldest months it is hard to have access to pick-your-own produce.  Luckily, there are still many great winter produce options at our local grocery stores and markets.  
If you’re looking for some winter produce this cold season try out these produce selections:      KaleBrussel SproutsWinter SquashCauliflowerSweet PotatoCarrotsBeetsStudents showed off their produce inside of the hoop house at
