In 2011, Growing Food and Sustainability was accepted as Wisconsin’s first Summer of Solutions program!
The Summer of Solutions is a life-changing experience that helps you build a network of friends who are reshaping the world, a platform for supporting yourself while developing sustainable communities, and concrete ideas, skills, and experiences to support new projects, new leaders, and even new careers. This is not just a summer job where you get paid for doing stuff that may not matter to you. It’s not just an academic experience where someone imparts knowledge to you. It’s not just hanging out and having a good time. Instead, it is learning-by-doing in ways that are life-changing and create real results benefiting communities and growing your personal ability while demonstrating what is possible.
