We grow farms
We’re educators, trainers, facilitators, and organizers. At our Gibbs Road Farm, we train paid and volunteer apprentices in farming; more than 40% of our former crew members have gone off to start their own farms and to engage with food and agriculture as activists, business people, and leaders. Our Juniper Gardens Training Farm helps new, limited resource farmers get started growing small farm businesses. And, across the city, our staff at Get Growing Kansas City Team work with independently operated farms owned by individuals, by families, and by non-profits. Our goal is to help people grow food to feed other people, as businesses and as non-profit programs, and to help these growers learn the skills they need, access the resources that are out there for them, and develop farms that are productive, sustainable and engaged with their community.
Together we’re growing the change.
