Our Reach

In 2023, we expanded to new heights by developing new programs and increasing overall access to fresh food, hands on experiences, and education with more groups of people.

We reach people and strengthen communities because of your generosity! You make it possible for the entire Grow It Green team to work day in and day out to do the essential work seen throughout these pages. A healthier, greener and more just food system is about more than food. It is linked to use of green resources, healthcare, social justice, the climate crisis, healthcare and education.


Tackling the food system’s excessive impact, while continuing to produce healthy and affordable food to increase nutrition security is a huge challenge. You can be a part of efforts to change the system from farm to fork on a local level with solutions that start with the youngest members of our community and extend deep into the basic roots of growth- soil and water. 

Read on to learn what you are making possible this year and how connecting through food is such a powerful and joyful effort that we can all get behind.


Over 2,200 students aged Pre-K to college were involved with farm-based education programs this year- doubling the number from last year. Through these programs, students can connect to where food comes from, covering topics including plant science, nutrition, and environment.


Discovery-based learning is essential for creating positive food memories, while sparking curiosity and exploration for young minds. The earlier children are introduced to the taste of fresh foods including vegetables, the greater the impact on their long term health.


Families need support to grow up healthy eaters. In 2022, we have had so many schools, youth groups and scout groups reaching out ready for us to return in the classroom and coming back to the farm!
