Welcome to the Growing Great Program! 

The mission of Growing Great is to empower every child to grow up healthy through science-based garden and nutrition education. Thanks to the Growing Great program at Grand View, all of our students and their families will have the opportunity to grow, eat, and learn more about healthy foods. If you want to learn more about Growing Great.

Growing Great Philosophy

  • Eat a wide variety of colorful, whole foods that are close to their original source.
  • Choose higher quality, beneficial foods more often.
  • Select local, seasonal, organic, and/or sustainably farmed foods when possible.
  • Appreciate the impact of food on our overall well-being so that we can think, feel, and perform at our best all day long!

School Garden 

Students grow, harvest and eat their own food from our “Growing Great” garden located on campus. Students experience new foods in their organic school gardens while learning about seasonality, life cycles and sustainable food production.
