community funding

Our grassroots community funding. Each location has a dedicated page on our website to coordinate donations and fundraising efforts. 

The LEAF greenhouse is a benefit to the school, the students, the families in the neighborhood, and makes a sizable contribution towards water conservation. It provides healthy, local food and job skills development for the students involved and even saves a trip to the grocery store for fresh vegetables. It provides CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) memberships, one box of 12 veggies a week for a month in a renewable membership. And the LEAF also produces 6000 pounds of native, edible freshwater fish annually. 

500 months of subscriptions could build a LEAF in your neighborhood school
That is equivalent to: 84 families signing up for 6 months

SchoolGrown is a 501(c)3 organization
