Happy Belly Farms

Way to Grow is honored to include Happy Belly Farms as part of their community outreach program.

 

“Happy Belly Farm, one of Colorado’s largest non-profit farms, is so incredibly grateful to Way To Grow for their financial support over the years.  Since the Farm’s inception in 2011, Happy Belly Farm has provided fresh, chemical free, garden vegetables to thousands of families throughout the Denver metropolitan area.  Throughout this time, Way To Grow has helped to provide the necessary funding for the Farm to expand and support more families that otherwise would not have access to fresh, chemical free produce.  Happy Belly Farm, with the tremendous support of Way To Grow, is committed to sustainable farm practices that will ensure the Farm’s continued operations and growth in future years.” Bill Peters

 

 

At Way to Grow, we pride ourselves on being able to offer the tools to create a more sustainable future for our inheriting generations. We believe that in serving our communities, we play a vital role in promoting natural and organic farming methods that enable us to have a positive impact on our soil, people and planet.

 

Founded in 2002, we developed our stores with the intention of creating an educational space for our customers with quality items to choose from. We know that maintaining an open and honest relationship with our customers is the very key to our success. In return, we attempt to provide generous and high caliber service for every customer that walks in the doors of one of our seven stores.

 

Our vision to give back to our communities expands outside of our store walls. We look for opportunities to leverage our skills, technology and each other to deliver new value in new ways. We are creative and entrepreneurial in bringing value to our customers, associates, partners and community.

 

We invest in our future by sponsoring the growing efforts in our local schools. We believe in nurturing the minds of students and fostering a deeper relationship between their food systems and the soil. That is why we fund the gardening programs and growing efforts of the following schools:

  • Lincoln Middle School Fort Collins, CO
  • Poudre High School FFA, Fort Collins, CO
  • Bradley Elementary, Denver, CO
  • McGlone Elementary, Denver, CO
  • Schmitt Elementary, Denver, CO
  • Rocky Mountain High School, Fort Collins, CO
  • Littleton High School, Denver, CO
  • Webber Middle School, Fort Collins, CO

 

Two of our core values at Way to Grow, ACCOUNTABILITY and RESPECT, holds us to our original vision and mission. We refuse to compromise the quality or service we provide, for any reason. We make clear our commitments and meet them. They are reflected in the well-intentioned projects and nonprofits we support such as: Happy Belly Farms, Rams Against Hunger, Hearts ‘n’ Hands, Abundant Harvest Community Garden and Slow Food Seed to Table. It is our intention to continue our service to the community at a growing rate in the years to come.
