Turning Point: Growing Home and the Englewood Transformation

Watch to learn how we’ve spent the past decade bringing job opportunity and organic produce to Englewood through urban agriculture.


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.
