Mission Statement

Our mission is to create a community-driven, neighborhood-based food system by serving as a hub for food distribution, production, education, and economic development.

Organization History

Everyone deserves a healthy meal. Yet in many communities, the fresh foods necessary for a healthy diet simply aren't available. The GrowHaus is a community development and food justice non-profit in one such "food desert" community - northeast Denver's Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. Our mission is to create a community-driven, neighborhood-based food system by serving as a hub for food distribution, production, education, and economic development.

The GrowHaus is based in an historic 20,000 square-foot greenhouse, which has been renovated to grow produce, distribute food, and teach about healthy living.

Testimonials

"This is the best thing happening in our neighborhood. There are so many kids getting into trouble, they need something like this - something they can do, that is so positive for the neighborhood." Gerard Marquez, lifetime resident of Elyria-Swansea

Seed2Seed Middle School Summer Program:

"I felt a lot more comfortable than I have ever felt in a long time, I feel like I can talk and share what I think and not worrying about what negative things people might say I felt like I have opened up a lot more."

"I have learned that trust is important and also that the planet needs to be taken care of and that eating healthy is awesome and that plants and everything has a beauty to it."

"I learned that the youth really can do anything and being apart of the community can make a huge difference."
