About Grow it Forward
Amber Daugs founded Grow It Forward (GIF) Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, in November of 2014. The organization’s vision is to be recognized as Manitowoc County’s leader in increasing and sustaining the availability of locally produced food. In short, Grow It Forward is on a mission to grow, teach, feed, and connect our local food community. The full scope of what they’re striving to achieve can be found at www.grow-it-forward.com
As a result of its programs and services, GIF aims to create a healthier community with long lasting economic and ecological benefits, reducing gaps in the local food supply chain, and assisting in the growth of job creation by way of helping new local food businesses to become operational.
GROW, FEED, TEACH, CONNECT. These are the Four Pillars of Grow It Forward. Allow us to flesh these Pillars out some:
- Grow It Forward provides healthier, more affordable food for people of all socioeconomic backgrounds. They do this by offering guidance and support to those growing produce in our community—schools, public or private gardens, and practitioners of urban agriculture. Operations under GIF’s GROW mission pillar include the following: the South 14th Street Community Garden, Manitowoc Community Garden, the Giving Garden at First Presbyterian Church’s Community Dinners Meal Site, EBT FoodShare at the Farmers Market, Double Bucks Match program at the Farmers Market, and Grow It Forward’s Indoor Tower Garden.
