A lot of hands-on building for Green Bridge Growers lately - on our greenhouse, and in building partnerships and connections in the community. In addition to our handy work with hammer and drill, we're happy to have shared the Green Bridge Growers story recently with a number of stakeholders --- Goodwill Industries in South Bend, Notre Dame entrepreneurship classes, Century Center committees, and with Logan Center and its friends. Based on feedback, bringing our aquaponics-based business to our community - and employing those on the autism spectrum in the process - is a source of much hope!
We were just up in Wisconsin recently for more learning and training with our friends at Growing Power in Milwaukee. Several of our team participated in their aquaponics workshop, an intensive three-day course that combined the science of growing fish and vegetables together with hands-on construction where we built an aquaponic system from scratch! We were excited to meet fellow aquapons from all over the country, as well as those from far-away places like London and Greece.
Green Bridge Growers is a social enterprise created to put to work the many gifts and skills of young adults with autism. Our founders, Chris and Jan, are building an exciting venture that grows fresh local food and grows great jobs for autistic adults. We invite you to learn about us and follow our work!
