The ToolBox combines local energy and initiative with knowledge, tools and resources to make things happen and get things done. GrowTown believes a simple idea and a small opportunity can change a whole community.

As an adaptable resource of do-able, low-cost and even no-cost ideas and solutions, the ToolBox makes it possible for people and neighborhoods to envision projects and start change immediately, even when little capital is available. Thriving organic food systems naturally depend on biodiversity and healthy ecological functions.

GrowTown strategies nourish and foster civic stewardship of the land, blending natural and social systems. Based on solutions that feed people, create health, and build an economy aimed at self-reliance, GrowTown is the preferred model of growth in failing neighborhoods.
