Stewardship of Creation
“Do what you have to do to get what you want”
We use the sustainable food system model to connect our Life Skills Through Plant Cultivation program, our Work Study Program, and our Financial Literacy Course to enhance Orlando’s environment, economy, and social well-being.

“Bloom where you are planted, but don’t be afraid to transplant yourself.”
At Grow Orlando we cultivate people in much the same way we grow plants. All of our programs empower our students to discover who they are as people and give them the tools to realize their destiny.
“Never doubt that small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~ Margaret Mead
At Grow Orlando we use plants to help our youth to define their value.
The plant and the person belong naturally in our system and are essential to one another’s survival…
About Grow Orlando
Accessible food should not destroy You or the Earth.
Our mission as a company is simple - we use agriculture to grow at risk teenagers with learning disabilities. We use plant growth, gardening, and farming as a medium for the development of life skills such as: work maturity skills, financial literacy, and personal well-being. Health and wellness wind up being a byproduct of our system. This allows a strong foundation to be created, allowing socioeconomic change driven by the community. Through the simple action of taking responsibility of one’s dietary and fiscal needs, self-doubt dissipates; allowing the entire community to benefit in a brighter future.
We believe food deserts are more than just food problems and need to be addressed through economic, cultural, and environmental solutions for any lasting change to happen.
