GrowingGreat’s mission is to build nourishing, learning communities that empower children to make healthy food choices. Our garden and nutrition education programs are multicultural with a focus on literacy and scientific inquiry. As a pioneer in school gardens in Los Angeles since 1999, GrowingGreat has reached hundreds of thousands of children and parents with hands-on nutrition, STEM, and garden education. We offer activities for preschool through high school, in Spanish and English, during and after school, and always with the opportunity to enjoy fresh, healthy foods. We are committed to low-income families in our cement-covered city where fresh produce is hard to find and a school garden may be the only green space a child experiences. In 2017/18 we impacted 15,000 PreK-12th graders, 65% in low-income neighborhoods.
