The Growing HOPE project is a combination of evidence-based curriculum coupled with novel technology and a soul enriching environment.

This garden worked wonders on the health of cancer survivors. After 4 months into the project, the participants decreased their weight, non-HDL, fasting glucose and cholesterol.

There was a marked improvement in the physical activity and skin carotenoids.


The garden had rows of berries, kale and sweet peppers. How awesome is it not?

The survivors had access to all these fresh produce. They were guided by nutrition experts.

Dr.Clinton the lead researcher says that the psycho-social experience of sharing, being in nature, watching the sunset, hearing the birds and smelling the earth enhances the solace of the soul.
