Our focus for 2023-2024

Fund & Implement

Fund and implement agrivoltaics projects at community gardens in food desserts while educating students and the community about STEM

As our population grows, the need for new agricultural technologies drastically increases, as we need more efficient ways to produce more crops without degrading our planet and overusing our natural resources. That is why at Growing Green, our primary goal is to promote and implement renewable technologies that will positively affect agriculture by making it more sustainable. We strive to educate our community on the importance of sustainable agriculture and help local farmers and organizations develop, implement, and fund these renewable technologies.



Growing Green is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that focuses on improving agriculture while decreasing our negative impact on the environment. Inspired by volunteering at community gardens and working with organizations such as Tiger Mountain Foundation, Sarah Bendok founded Growing Green as a freshman high school student at Phoenix Country Day School. We saw that farmers put so much effort and hard work into improving their farms and growing food just to take home meager earnings as crop yields decrease with worsening environmental conditions.

Increases crop yield

Enhances soil quality

Reduces water consumption

Improves working conditions

Provides farms with sustainable energy 


Putting solar panels over cropland with the following benefits:

We have executed several agrivoltaics projects in the middle of South Phoenix’s food desert to promote and provide healthy food choices to individuals, food banks, farmers markets and school cafeterias. These  projects will not only help the local community but will also set an example for commercial, family, and community farms around the country to adopt Agrivoltaics. We are also promoting agrivoltaics to be adopted in schools
