Project GROW empowers underserved youth through garden-based education and employment. We have created a youth education and sustainable gardening program we call Project GROW — designed for homeless and youth aging-out of foster care in Colorado. Project GROW is located in downtown Denver near a youth transitional housing facility.
Through Project GROW we work with youth to become gardeners, harvesters and potential team leaders for Colorado-based Learning Gardens — reinforcing sustainable organic gardening, healthy business practices and responsible leadership. Project GROW breaks down racial and cultural barriers through communication and understanding within our diverse crew. Our youth leaders grow produce using organic techniques. Harvest time will lead to salsa making, canning and fermenting classes.
