Growing Power - Inc.
This Environmental Justice Small Grant Project in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, plans to educate Milwaukee Southside Latino families with lead-poisoned family members on lead contaminated soil. In addition, the project will educate families on growing organic vegetables and leafy greens to improve nutritional deficits and reduce the lead blood levels in children. This project will provide green job preparedness and opportunity for local youth through sustainable urban agriculture. Project activities will provide youth with bilingual training in urban sustainable growing methods and how it relates to improved environmental, public health, and climate change. The project will also provide education on nutrition to families regularly through seasonal garden activities such as cultivating soil, planting seeds, and preparing a composting system.
