The purpose of our grassroots organization, Gardeners for Regional Organic Wellbeing, referred to as GROW!, is to support a local and regional food security system and to advocate for agricultural practices that enhance the ecological independence and economic sustainability of Boundary County, Idaho. Our goal is to create a self-sufficient, food independent community.
We are always looking for new community gardeners, members, and support. Donations, either monetary or supplies, are very much appreciated. Become a member of GROW for only $20.00/yr. Lease a 4x20 ft. garden space within our garden for $20.00 per year, or a double plot for $45.00. Please read the 'About Us' link on the left column and browse our site.
