Description

Grow Jackson is bringing the Groundhog Gallop back to Jackson to benefit our Summer 2022 Initiatives. Grow Jackson is a nonprofit 501(c)3 entity that exists to end food insecurity in Jackson. By operating community gardens and rescuing good food from being thrown away we are making healthy food options available to our neighbors, educating the next generation on the value of a healthy diet for personal health, and are playing a part in the wellness of our whole community. This year we are fundraising for a farm vehicle and farming equipment for the expansion of our food growing operations in 2022. All proceeds will go to supporting these efforts so that we can continue to grow local organic food in urban farms for our neighbors!
