Lori Midson from the Westword sat down with our co-founder, Adam Brock for an exclusive interview about The GrowHaus, our FoodBox program, Permaculture, and other important food issues.
"Growing up, I couldn't have cared less about cooking food, much less growing food," says Adam Brock. "My parents definitely encouraged me to get into food -- we even had a huge garden in the back yard -- but I was like, whatever, who cares? I was more into stuff like making music, longboarding and design -- but not ecological design," he admits.
Brock left his home town of Denver to attend college in New York, and that's where everything changed.
What a difference a decade makes."

We just received a nice write up of our Food Box program in 5280 Magazine!
The GrowHaus’s new Mercado de al Lado (your market next door) program distributes food boxes full of fresh fruit, veggies, grains, eggs, and more to residents in the Elyria-Swansea and Globeville neighborhoods for a mere $20 a week. The same ingredients at, say, Walmart, would cost upward of $45...
Even if you don’t live in the two neighborhoods the GrowHaus serves, you can order what’s called a “sponsorship box” of the same fresh, organic ingredients. You’ll pay a little more for it ($37.50, still lower than supermarket prices), but your payment will help supplement the program for others in need. Get your weekly groceries and a warm and fuzzy feeling? Not a bad deal if you ask us.
