Overview of Outdoor Idea

:

GRuB’s innovative summer job training and alternative farm-based school model creates opportunities for low-income and disengaged youth urban youth to get their hands in the soil and learn how to take care of themselves and the earth simultaneously. G...R...u...B Go GRuB Grow!

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

GRuB grows healthy food, people, and communities. Our mission is to inspire positive personal and community change by bringing people together around food and agriculture.

Youth will participate in land and community-based projects which bring more relevance and synergy into their learning. Teens will gain the context, passion, and skills to advocate for good food and environmental sustainability solutions in their own lives and community. All activities will be based on GRuB’s core themes of Farming Self (personal development), Farming Land (sustainable land stewardship), and Farming Community (civic engagement & community service). They will improve the lives of others by growing food for the Food Bank, their families, and for market.

This is such a wonderful organization! GRuB helps so many families and at-risk teens in the community. I know that winning this would make a real and quantifiable difference for the program. I attended one of GRuB's KGP classes in the spring about growing an organic garden. From this experience, my partner and I gained the knowledge to grow and maintain a successful veggie patch--for the first time--which reduced our grocery bills and helped us feel more connected to our food.
