Growhio is a nonprofit Sustainable Cleveland 2019 initiative designed to strengthen and support Northeast Ohio's local food economy through marketing, branding and collaboration. We partner with and organizations and businesses to promote their local food projects and offerings and connect consumers to resources for buying and learning about local food.
Growhio is volunteer-run and relies on grant funding, merchandise sales, consultation fees and donations (monetary and in-kind) to support its activities. Growhio uses Kamm's Corners Development Corporation, a 501(c)(3) organization, as its fiscal agent for nonprofit status.
Growhio does not have a physical location. We use our fiscal agent Kamm's Corners Development Corporation's address as our mailing address: 17407 Lorain Ave, Suite 200, Cleveland, Ohio 44111. Our team operates virtually and via meetings at local establishments.
Growhio conducts extensive outreach to consumers to help them understand the benefits of local food and direct them to growhio.org for information about where to buy local. Our 2011 marketing campaign reached an exposure of more than 2.9 million people. With more than 400 pageviews per week and 100 unique visitors per week, having your business listed on growhio.org is an excellent way to reach an expanded customer base.
We love to share, but we are all volunteers with plenty of work to do! Growhio offers consulting services to individuals or groups considering starting a local food project or planning an event, including one-on-one meetings or phone conversations, event planning, promotion and additional services. For information on these services and associated fees, please contact us.
We sell Growhio merchandise at various local events throughout the year. Please check our Growhio Events calendar for upcoming events. You can also contact us to make arrangements to purchase merchandise.
