Growing Home Block Party

Join Growing Home at our Wood Street Urban Farm for our annual Block Party! From 11am until 3pm on June 22nd, we will be offering farm tours, a bouncy house, activities for kids, food, our farm stand, community resource tables, and other vendors.


Growing Home’s administrative office serves as home base for our Executive Director and development staff. With the new office less than three miles from the farm, we are thrilled to now have our entire staff based in Englewood.


What If We Could Grow?

Featuring alumni, community partners, employer partners, staff, and more, this testament to our work recounts Growing Home’s impact over the past 17 years, while posing a very important question: What if this is just the beginning?

Wherever I go in the next five, ten, twenty years, it's always going to come back to this. To Growing Home. Because there's something that you all saw in me, and your hearts went out to me. People don't have to do something like that if they don't want to. They do it because they believe someone like me deserves a second chance. Growing Home gave me a second chance.
