All money raised by Goodness Grows through donations, fundraisers, CSA subscriptions, and sales of jam, crafts, veggies, etc. gets poured right back into our programs. Your investment in us stays here to support our work in our community with special needs students and adults, as well as their typically developing peers. It allows us to welcome classrooms and youth groups to our property and provides the needed funds for supplies and resources to give them work experiences, learning experiences, and fun. Every dollar is put to good use, is greatly appreciated, and makes a difference in so many ways!

March Means Classes Are Back!

We love springtime because it means our classroom friends return to us! This week, we welcomed back Mohawk students, teachers, and staff. Next week will bring the rest of the crew - Crestview, Leetonia, and Salem. The enthusiasm these groups bring is inspiring. Our GG clients and staff love it when they're here. Mohawk jumped right into a project by our back greenhouses, getting some beds ready for planting flowers. Thanks, Mohawk!!
