It's Mission Trip Planning Time!

Looking for somewhere to serve with your small or large group? Interested in gardening and working outdoors? Do you enjoy small demo and building projects? Is there a group or a church that you're acquainted with that might be interested in a mission trip to Northeast Ohio? We would love to welcome you to Goodness Grows! We work with Canfield Presbyterian Church (CPC), where mission trip housing is available, to facilitate an easy-to-plan, meaningful service experience.

Looking Back at Past Mission Trip Fun

From fence building to greenhouse demo, gardening to jam making...our groups do it all! Each season brings different adventures and new plans and ideas crop up every year. We appreciate all the amazing mission groups for the hard work they put in here at Goodness Grows, for their great big hearts of service, and for the smiles and laughter they always bring! We cannot wait to see what new experiences come with 2019!
