growingSOUL — Sustainable Opportunities for Universal Learning– is dedicated to educating the public about the vital role of human interdependence and reciprocity in developing and promoting a sustainable food system
that benefits the health of individuals, communities, and our planet. One that helps community members connect to one another and our earth, and in the process of growing food, helps grow our SOULs.
At growingSOUL, we demonstrate and teach the strategies necessary to create a zero-waste food cycle including composting, local food production, preparation, and preservation all fueled by renewable energies. Our Culinerati volunteer corps are a universal community, a diverse multi-generational organization, where young and old people from all walks of life engage in hands-on opportunities where they can own their knowledge, become lifelong learners and connectors, spread the word and be a part of growing a movement, not apart from it.
