Doing Something Great in your Community . . .

by Jim Paluch on September 7, 2012

The GrowhausMany business owners and leaders are committed to the communities they serve and are always willing to offer a helping hand either with their time or financial support. Great businesses know the importance of helping the communities they work and live in to flourish for the good of everyone.  Sometimes it is not always clear what to do or how to do it in the most effective way. ADAM BROCK, who helped found the GrowHaus in Denver, has discovered how to build something in his community that can have a lasting impact for decades to come.  The GrowHaus is an indoor farm, marketplace and educational center.  Their goal is to provide healthy, affordable food for the surrounding community and raise awareness about issues of food justice and sustainability.  His innovative approach is not only helping to provide food, but it is developing leaders and skills that will ultimately grow minds and the community.

Adam Brock from The GrowHausAdam Brock is a Denver native and a graduate of NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, with a concentration in Ecological Design. He has been active as an urban agriculture practitioner and advocate since 2008 and is trained as a permaculture designer and teacher. Adam collaborates with numerous sustainability- and social justice-oriented groups and is a member of Denver’s Sustainable Food Policy Council. Adam currently serves as its Director of Operations, overseeing educational programming, community outreach, and strategic partnerships.

We are hosting a webinar with Adam as our guest to provide you with ideas on creating non-profit organizations, selecting projects to work on, engaging the community as a catalyst to success and using projects as a learning opportunity for your company and your clients.
