GROW Windham would not exist without the generosity of our supporters. We eagerly accept both in-kind (tools, art supplies, building materials) and financial contributions. Your dollars go directly toward our programs. Some examples:
$15.00 provides ingredients and supplies for a nutrition and cooking class.
$25.00 provides a stipend for a local high school student to participate in a “Workshop Workday”, in which they develop workforce readiness skills while performing meaningful community service supporting the local food system.
$50.00 provides a season of compost and mulch for a school garden.
$75.00 provides materials for two raised beds in a local community garden.
$100.00 provides a teacher’s “toolkit”, materials for a customized, long-term garden-based unit that is aligned with national educational standards and can be shared among teachers in the district.
$2,500.00 provides the cost share for an AmeriCorps Service Member to dedicate a year to engaging local youth to promote access to healthy food in our community.
Contributions can be made by check to our fiscal sponsor, the Windham Regional Community Council, Inc., and sent to us at:
