Welcome to Project Grows
Project GROWS is a community farm where children and youth grow, eat, and enjoy. We inspire younger members of the community and teach them about healthy living through many hands-on experiences. Youth grow food from soil to seed to harvest. They find this same food in their meals and have the opportunity to prepare it together. We teach them why fresh food is healthy and help them develop business skills to market and sell it. Local growers share with them their approach to producing healthy food. Youth bring family and friends to farm events and celebrations. Finally, participants take pride in what they accomplish and enjoy what hard work can produce.
We need your help! You may have years of experience growing produce, cooking healthy meals, or working on a farm. Maybe you would like to learn how to do these things for the first time. Either way, we encourage you to get involved and become a Project GROWS volunteer. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or check here for more opportunities Join Us.
