Quarterly Giving Recipient – We Grow Greens
WPIG members have selected We Grow Greens to receive $500, as part of our quarterly giving program. We Grow Greens, is a Milwaukee-based non-profit organization that empowers teenagers to grow healthy food, provides skill-building employment opportunities, and strives to help teenagers become leaders.
We Grow Greens offers an urban gardening paid internship program that empowers teenagers through projects based upon entrepreneurship, civic responsibility, and self-discovery. Teenagers grow produces such as organic micro greens, squash, peppers and sell them at local farmer’s markets. They also partner with other local non-profits and businesses on other community projects such as murals, urban greenhouses, and city beautification. We Grow Greens encourage teens to engage in their community, teaches them business skills, and promotes healthy living! WPIG’s support will help fund the urban gardening internship program and we are proud to connect with such an incredible organization!
