About The GrowHaus
Everyone deserves a healthy meal. But in some communities, healthy food simply isn't available. The GrowHaus is a non-profit urban farm and education center in one such community - northeast Denver’s Elyria-Swansea neighborhood.
The GrowHaus is based in an historic 20,000 square-foot greenhouse. We're currently using the space to grow fresh healthy greens and teach about healthy living. We also continue to renovate more of our space to accommodate increased food production, educational facilities, and a local food distribution network.
Here at The GrowHaus, we envision a world where all communities have the means to nourish themselves. Our mission is to create a community-driven, neighborhood-based food system by serving as a hub for food access, urban agriculture, education and job training.
We aim to achieve this mission through the following core values:
The GrowHaus aims to partner with its community to provide opportunities for residents to be financially secure and food secure.
Strong communities know how to collaborate across lines of race, class, and gender. Whether it's with our staff, our neighbors, or our strategic partners, we believe in acknowledging and honoring our differences and working together to create a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
It takes more than a compelling vision to make a lasting impact. By tracking and reporting measurable goals towards social, environmental and economic sustainability, we are commited to holding ourselves accountable to our partners and community.
The most sustainable practice is to be a good steward of what one already has. In this spirit, The GrowHaus strives to embody an ethic of responsible planning and management of all available resources. We aim to perform our work with integrity and quality.
Every person has the right to thrive. We strive to connect people with resources and opportunities that support and nourish their wellbeing.
