Every day, Toledo GROWs staff extend an invitation to all in the community to join us in this work. The results are tangible:

  • 6,500+ individuals are served in 120 community gardens
  • 900-1,000 people receive free seeds and education at our annual Seed Swap
  • 2,236 youth participated in educational sessions last year
  • 7,100 seedlings were grown and distributed free of charge to the community this year
  • 4,248 pounds of produce were harvested at our urban farm last year

Why is this work vital?

  • 29% of Lucas County youth live in poverty
  • 24% of Lucas County youth are overweight or obese
  • 12% of Lucas County adults are diabetic\
  • Only 5% of Lucas County residents eat the recommended 5 daily servings of fruits or vegetables

Community gardeners save between $75 and $380 in food costs every season. Their families eat healthier, more nutrient rich diets than do non-gardening families. Toledo GROWs is investing in our community so that all have increased access to a more healthy diet.
