Growing Roots East End Network

What is G.R.E.E.N. about?

The Growing Roots East End Network aim is to bring together local schools and organizations for the purpose of helping sustain, promote, and connect gardens across the school feeder patterns. As a result, we hope to see an increase in access to healthy foods, improved nutrition education, greater social cohesion, and economic opportunities for low-income families.
