As a 501c3, The Get Growing Foundation has a mission to inspire, educate, and motivate the next generation of gardeners through community outreach and education, experience-based learning, and horticultural job skills training. Get Growing Foundation leads the way in creating gardens, workshops, seminars, and year-round programming.
Get Growing Foundation launched PLANT TRUCK Chicago, a mobile plant boutique working with special-needs programs to grow plants for underserved communities and raising funds and awareness through pop-up sales and special event appearances.
In June of 2021 GGF launched the Get Growing! EXPO series bringing display gardens, gardening education, and a green market in and around Chicagoland. The event pays homage to the Chicago Flower & Garden Show® previously held each March at Chicago’s Navy Pier.
