GROW Windham is a collaboration of community partners dedicated to promoting access to healthy food in the Windham region through the support of community food projects and food- and garden-based youth programming.
Our focus areas include:
- The Windham Youth CORE Program (“Cultivating Opportunities, Resources and Education”), that engages local high school students in youth-led community food enterprises through which they build their own skill-set for career and life experiences and build their community at the same time;
- The Lauter Park Community Gardens, where youth and community members grow food for the community and host workshops, workdays, and community events;
