To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.....


​​​The Growing Piece is a newly founded not-for-profit organization whose mission is to make a difference in the lives of individuals with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities by providing relevant training and skill development that will support the clients being employed within The Growing Piece organization itself or in other community positions. At present all positions within The Growing Piece are still volunteer as the organization is building its business structure but the ultimate goal is to be able to fully support all positions. The first venture of The Growing Piece was building a 3,000 square foot garden which was completed for the growing season in 2015. The clients were introduced to the basics of gardening including, understanding the life cycle of plants, planting, watering and weeding the garden along with harvesting the produce and selling the items at a farmers market.
