Did you see the GROW Coalition featured in the September 11 Wisconsin State Journal?
Grass Roots | Outdoor Wonder is a collective of organizations, groups, parents, teachers and youth who promote outdoor learning in and around Madison, Wisconsin.
The GROW Coalition of Greater Madison formed in 2011. Coalition members recognize the many benefits of discovery and wonder in outdoor learning. Efforts to promote long-term, responsible stewardship of food systems, environment and community health requires young people, families and educators to develop meaningful relationships with the natural world. Through meaningful outdoor experiences, people learn to care more deeply about the Earth, the environment, nutrition, the community and each other.
We will promote outdoor learning opportunities by sharing ideas and resources, encouraging participation by diverse groups of youth and families, and building on rich assets that already exist in Greater Madison. We will also work to shape systems and policy in our community to incorporate sustainability as a key component of high-quality education for the 21st century.
Join us outside.
