Connecting children to healthy food and nature
2019 Annual Report
The 2019 Annual Report is ready for you to view. We are very proud of the work done in the past year and are looking forward to continued growth and development of our programs in 2020. The amazing impact a supportive community and an organization on a mission to connect children to healthy food and nature is clear to us. We hope by viewing this snapshot of the year you will feel that impact too. Follow this link to view the entire report.
Volunteering & Learning in the Greenhouse
For the upcoming weeks our new interns will be participating in a six part training series led by our preceptee, Haley. This training course enhances past training programs in an effort to ensure GROW interns are best prepared to carry out our mission.  

The last training focused on proper plant care when working with the school gardens. They practiced transferring plants and watering. Whether you are itching to start planting or you want to see the greenhouse space, we’d love to see you during these volunteer hours.  All are welcome!
