Building food Communities

Grow Haus creating food, one Community at a time, this is what they have done in 2012, just to give everyone a glimpse.Here at The GrowHaus, we envision a world where everybody has the means to nourish themselves – nutritionally, intellectually, and emotionally. In the short time we have been active, we’ve aimed to put that vision into practice by creating a hub for healthy food in our neighborhood of Elyria-Swansea.2012 was a year of great strides for the GrowHaus. Thanks in large part to the support of our community, we were able to achieve the following milestones:

  • Distributing 6,892 heads of lettuce grown in our Hydrofarm – including 710 heads donated directly to residents of the Elyria-Swansea community.
  • Leading service learning workshops for 582 students, showing many of them where their food comes from for the first time
  • Successfully raising $150,000 to purchase our building as part of the OurHaus campaign
  • Launching a 3,000 square-foot commercial aquaponics farm with Colorado Aquaponics, which will raise over 800 fish and 3,000 plants at a time
  • Hiring Maria Elena and Angelica Campos, two resident promotoras that are health ambassadors to our neighbors
