Community Involvement

We believe in investing in our community as a means of giving back. This is reflected in the well-intentioned projects and nonprofits we support such as: Happy Belly Farms, The Kitchen Community, 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.

Urban Farming Impact

Way to Grow has been happy to partner with Groundwork Denver, Produce Denver and the Denver Public Schools to teach urban youth the skills and values of farming in urban areas and give them an opportunity to work and give back to their community. Way to Grow was happy to work with VermiCrop Organics to donate 400 pounds of organic VermiVeg fertilizer to the school farms at Bradley Elementary, McGlone Elementary, and Schmitt Elementary schools in Denver. Soil testing has shown that soil nitrogen levels are low at these sites and the fertilizer can help ensure a bountiful harvest from the school farms.

On behalf of Denver Public Schools

...Enterprise Management/Department of Food and Nutrition Services, which provides meals to students across Denver, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for Way to Grow’s support for our school farms over the past six years… and most recently for [their] donation. This very generous donation allowed us to purchase a shed for the Bradley farm, providing a secure place to store tools, amendments, supplies, and sanitation and harvest equipment to help ensure safe, healthy, local food for Denver kids, and shows your dedication to the Denver community.

Thank you, again, for all of your support. We appreciate it so much!
