About Growing the UP
DO YOU CARE ABOUT LOCAL FOOD AND EDUCATION?
Maybe you’re passionate about a vibrant local food system in the U.P., and you’re looking to find a school garden program, connect with experienced teachers, or find out what resources are available to help new and established agriculture education programs through community partners.
DO YOU NEED SUPPORT?
The U.P. is a large, sparsely populated region—a third of Michigan’s land mass, and only 3% of its population—and it’s sometimes hard to find each other.
WE’RE HERE TO HELP.
Growing the U.P. is a tool to help you locate and connect with actively engaged schools and community partners that give young people hands-on learning experiences in agriculture, food, and natural resources.
