Louisville Grows, Communications Coordinator VISTA
 
 
 
Louisville Grows, founded in 2009, is an environmental 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to Grow Greener, Healthier Neighborhoods. Our vision is to foster green, just and sustainable neighborhoods in Louisville. Healthy House is the headquarters for Louisville Grows located in the historic Portland neighborhood. In addition to being our office, Healthy House is an engaging community space that connects the neighborhoods we serve to various opportunities provided by our community partners. We seek to be a leading nonprofit in advocating for health equity through the environmental platforms of urban forestry and urban agriculture. Louisville Grows' neighborhood-based urban forestry program focuses on restoring the urban tree canopy with a goal of planting 1000 trees each year. The main focus of our urban agriculture program is to build capacity in community gardens by providing technical assistance, education and infrastructure by offering community garden grants. Louisville Grows is dedicated to restoring the urban tree canopy and providing environmental education opportunities that will lead to ending health disparities in our community.
