Louisville Grows, founded in 2009, is an environmental 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to Grow Greener, Healthier Neighborhoods. Our vision is to foster green, just and sustainable neighborhoods in Louisville. Louisville Grows’ neighborhood-based urban forestry program focuses on restoring the urban tree canopy with a goal of planting 1000 trees each year. The main focus of our urban agriculture program is to build capacity in community gardens by providing technical assistance, education and infrastructure by offering community garden grants. Louisville Grows seeks to be a leading nonprofit in advocating for health equity through the environmental platforms of urban forestry and urban agriculture.
Annual Appeal 2020
Volunteers are the backbone of Louisville Grows! In 2020, due to COVID-19, we were unable to work with the thousands of volunteers we engaged in 2019 to help us with tree plantings, Seeds and Starts Sale, and community gardens. The pandemic has directly impacted our efforts to deliver vital services and keep our doors open at Healthy House.
We are hurting without our volunteers and are in urgent need of your support! With increasing demand on our small staff, it is difficult to continue to serve the neighborhoods most impacted by the lack of an urban tree canopy and fresh, healthy food.
Donating to our annual campaign, helps us keep the lights on while sustaining our work to grow greener, healthier neighborhoods for the 105,000+ residents in West and South Louisville. A gift of:
$50 allows us to invest in a set of tools at a community garden.
$250 plants a tree in someone’s yard and keeps it watered.
Please consider making a donation in any amount that is meaningful for you.
