The Grow Juniper Project
Growing a healthier tomorrow...
The United States has been blessed abundantly with agricultural production, but does our next generation of youth know what ecology is? We feel it is time to expand agricultural awareness by developing a community understanding of agriculture and ecology. The creation of a Community Garden is just one way to develop on-going relationships between families, communities, schools, individuals and their local farms.
The Grow Juniper Project brings sustainable, organic farming and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) projects to your back yard. Schools and neighbors will have the opportunity to participate in agricultural projects, learn how to identify agricultural materials, and take responsibility for their ecosystems.
By getting involved families and individuals will learn fun ways to implement practical, sustainable alternatives to the way we run our households, schools, and lives. By feeding our appetites with knowledge of how to grow our food, we will have the opportunity to feed our community too. Partner with us in giving back. Learn more about Getting Involved.
