Growing Ideas Since 1997
Greensgrow engages our neighborhoods in cultivating social entrepreneurship, urban agriculture, and community greening. Greensgrow is a nationally recognized leader in urban farming and is open to the public year round. Green roof on a composting toilet, a washing machine that spins-dry lettuce, honey bee hives atop tool shed, plants grown to measure lead uptake, Milkshake the pig, an abandoned house turned office space, an unused church kitchen turned small food business incubator and a deck made from old pallets and water bottles. A laundry list of crazy ideas? Yes and a day in the life of Greensgrow. Greensgrow is an Idea Farm that has given birth to our Summer and Winter CSA programs, the Community Kitchen, Greensgrow West and other projects resulting in permanent jobs and sustainable income which in turn allows us to start new projects such as our L.I.F.E. (Local Initiative for Food Education) Program .
