THE GROWHAUS NEEDS OUR HELP!!!
Drops of Good is a community project by Maxwell House to support the work of local organizations who are making a difference in the neighborhood and in the world. The contest is taking place online, where supporters can go to vote for the organization they would most like to see benefit from Maxwell's generous local grant. The GrowHaus has been selected as a candidate for a local grant of $50,000 to develop a store front in Elyria-Swansea, a food desert in Denver.
We at the GrowHaus believe that everyone deserves a healthy meal, but acknowledge that in some communities, healthy food is simply out of reach. As a food justice and urban agriculture non-profit in Denver, our mission is to increase the accessibility and affordability of fresh, healthy food in our community. We work towards this mission through the production, distribution, and education of healthy food and ideas. We are producing local, organic food in our urban farm, and holding workshops and trainings around food justice and sustinable urban farming. The next step is distribution. By voting for the GrowHaus, you are helping the urban marketplace take its first steps. In an area where healthy food is neither affordable nor readily available, the GrowHaus storefront will provide a space and a source for a healthier Elyria-Swansea.
