Veterans and military family members can get a scholarship to take this sustainable farming course through the College of Charleston!

Are you ready to explore sustainable farming and all that it has to offer? This Fall, Growing Minds will be hosting an exciting new course through the College of Charleston as part of their Sustainable Food Systems program. This course will be a “hands on” practical experience in which students will learn principles and techniques of sustainable farm production. The course is two days per week from 3-6 pm at the farm so it can easily be worked into your current schedule. Spots are limited.

We educate and empower individuals of all ages and abilities to grow food everywhere!

From the bees and bunnies to the goats and chickens, leaving the clover and just mowing paths through it keeps everyone happy including me because I don’t have to mow it as much 😊 #cloverlife #noHOA

Our Story

Growing Minds Project is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2015 in suburban Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. Our mission is to empower individuals to grow food everywhere! We believe that farming can no longer be restricted to rural areas. Our four acre farm is located in the heart of suburban Mount Pleasant. We currently have one acre devoted to an educational demonstration farm plot cultivated on the principles of sustainable agriculture and permaculture. It is a work in progress as farming not only teaches us self-sustainability but patience as well. As we continue to develop our farm we will also continue to add programs for the community, our youth and those with mental and physical disabilities. We believe that farming is not only an empowering experience but a healing one as well. It is critical that we preserve some of the last remaining land in our local community for the purpose of cultivation. Every day farm land is decreasing while population continues to increase. There is a time when we must put aside land for cultivation, teaching, healing and preservation. That time is now.
