Growing Roots is a non-profit organization serving our community members with autism, down syndrome and other diverse abilities. We use nature-based activity (gardening and animal care) to support our participants in building job skills, social skills, independence and a greater quality of life. This spring we are expanding our program and we need your help in caring for our goats and donkeys. The animals only get to see our participants 4 days a week, so they need love on the off days! Simple feeding and watering needed, snuggles appreciated! Come spend some time in nature for a good cause! Training provided, no experience required.

About GROWING ROOTS

Location:

1355 BRISTOL AVE NW, GRAND RAPIDS, MI 49504, US

Mission Statement

"Growing Roots’ mission is to provide a therapeutic, nature-based learning and working facility that allows all individuals to live a meaningful, satisfying life and to reach their highest potential."

Description

There is an immense need for persons with developmental and cognitive challenges to have a place where they can stay active, gain life skills, find meaning and build self-esteem through working and learning in a dynamic, safe and motivating environment. We are confident that for many, this can be accomplished through interaction with nature and through the care of crops and animals to produce valuable resources for the community.
