Today. Changing weather patterns are creating some of our nations largest disasters. Obesity and mal-nourishment are straining both our health system and our childrens capacity to reach their full potential. All the while the financial downturn and the continued cycle of poverty moves our connection to the environment and a healthy diet even further out of view. This wont work. This doesnt work. We believe that connecting our youth to nature, and training them for tomorrows green workforce is the best way to face some of our nations greatest challenges--head on. Thats why, for more than 15 years, CommunityGrows has been doing just that right here at home. Working with youth in San Franciscos Western Addition, we focus on environmental education, access to green jobs, gardening and healthy eating, and leadership training to grow confident, self-sufficient adults and a thriving community.
Mission: CommunityGrows is an environmental education program serving high-needs youth, especially those living in public housing in San Francisco. Youth acquire the necessary skills to live a healthy life through garden education, nutritious cooking and eating, and green jobs training.
