GROW Enrichment is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization based in Nashville, TN with a focus on community development through urban agricultural and nature conservation education. We offer ongoing instruction for home schooled-students, workshops for the general public, support programs for local public schools, and nature-based summer day camp opportunities. We also offer opportunities for citizens to engage in volunteerism through a variety of projects we manage.
Where learning begins with planting a seed...
A look at our programs
One of the many advantages of homeschooling is the freedom to let children choose the direction and pace of their educations. At GROW we strive to create an environment that naturally engages childrens curiosities and supports their discovery. Our Naturalist Class is designed to do a few key things for your child:
- Foster a love of nature and learning
- Provide time and space to engage with nature
- Support your child's scientific discovery
School Field Trips
GROW's project site is intended to be, in essence, a school garden for everyone. We are pleased to offer it to local schools as an educational destination for students of all abilities in all grade levels. Our director will work directly with your teaching staff to design a field trip that meets the learning goals you have for your students. A field trip to GROW is a great way to teach your students about urban conservation while also covering core science standards!
Summer Day Camps
GROW is the perfect place for kids to get outdoors in the summer and experience a wide range of natural habitats! In fact, our camps are entirely outdoors! Your child will hike, explore nature, meet wildlife, and enjoy untructured playtime all while learning basic principals of urban conservation.
At GROW we believe that the natural world makes a perfect living laboratory for students of all ages. We believe in hands-on experiential learning. We believe in student-led discovery. We believe in the power of nature to spark curiosity, wonder, creativity, play, and community.
"...even the insects in my path are not loafers, but have their special errands."
- Henry David Thoreau, 1906
