The Get Growing Foundation
The Get Growing Foundation has a mission to inspire, educate, and motivate the next generation of gardeners through community outreach and education, experience-based learning, and horticultural job skills training and placement.
In collaboration with the Chicago Flower & Garden Show®, Get Growing Foundation raises awareness and funding for hands-on programs specifically designed to cultivate understanding and provide practical advice in the areas of horticulture, gardening and conservation.
Gardening connects us to our world, from our food to our neighbors to our planet as a whole. We’re here to help foster that connection and encourage people of all ages to be a part of Chicago’s thriving horticultural legacy.
