Standing in Solidarity
With Our Community
"There’s never been a day that I came to Growing Home and wasn’t given the support I needed."
Empowering healthy people and communities through urban organic agriculture.
"If you have that drive and passion to succeed, the Growing Home community can help get you there."
"Being responsible for plants and seedlings, and caring for them much like you would a child, gave me a sense of being needed."
"This program helped me become a professional. I have a 401k. I have good benefits. I’m proud. My mom is proud."
"I like to give people
perspective on change,
let them know that change

A quarterly newsletter just from our farms to you! You’ll receive updates about all our happenings on the farm, in our employment training program and in our community. And of course, beautiful pictures of vegetables, hoop houses and our farm.
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.Program Graduate
