The Growe Foundation has been at the forefront of a national movement to teach children about healthy eating and caring for the environment since 2006. Our vision is to unite people around a shared goal of creating healthier children, schools, communities and the planet.
And our gardens are changing young lives – our 1st, 3rd and 4th graders told us that they want to eat more vegetables; love learning in the garden, and now understand about measurement. The teachers are excited too, the lesson plans fit in well with their health unit, and they loved watching the love of learning the gardens create.
Your support to help us maintain these programs is critical: Each school garden program costs $7,450 per year for us to support; our schools contribute about 10% of this expense.
