We are connecting neighbors and caring for nature by growing community partnerships, mentoring relationships, educational opportunities, access to local food, environmental sustainability, healthy lifestyle habits, and love for one another."
Growing Neighbors is about partnering with local organizations in growing relationships and produce with our neighbors to encourage healthier lifestyles. The primary goal is developing “Neighborhood Families.” We want to see neighbors sharing meals and resources, using their gifts to care for each others’ needs, and generally functioning more like an extended family. Some additional goals include increasing food access, food and fitness education, exercise, mentoring, job training, environmental stewardship, and waste-reduction. The primary means to accomplishing these goals is partnering with other community organizations to equip neighbors of all ages and ability levels to lead an urban farming movement in our local neighborhoods.
