Our current GRuB School crew is working to raise $8,000 toward the operating costs of this coming summer program. It’s their part in building the soil to grow the next crop of “GRuBbers.” What’s really special, is that several donors have already matched $8,000!. Please click below to watch the video that features current youth in action and talking about their experiences, give what you can, and share/forward to anyone that you believe would be interested.

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are winding down and the Department of Defense is in force reduction mode. Joint Base Lewis McChord is looking to reduce its footprint by 11,000 Soldiers and Service members over the next 2 years. Our region of Thurston, Pierce and Mason Counties are projected to have the highest Post 9/11 Veteran population growth rate in the State of Washington through 2020.
2014 has been a very full and exciting year for GRuB. In addition to sustaining our own GRuB School program, we’ve developed new partnerships to “pollinate” youth programs in Grays Harbor, Mason, and Pacific Counties. We’ve also continued to build gardens with families with lower incomes and engage in local food system leadership, all while updating our Strategic Plan. We have five goals through 2016, noted in the boxes below, which hold infinite possibilities for partnerships and far-reaching positive change. Please read on to hear the story of one of our newest partners and to learn about how you can contribute to GRuB’s next chapter. – Katie Rains, Executive Director
