Web Name: Gather & Grow – Rebuilding the Family Economy






EventsOur StoryWhat We DoThe Family EconomyResourcesGive

Our name reflects what we do: Gather people and Grow things. Gather families, gather friends, gather communities in order to grow food, grow skills, grow relationships, and grow faith.

We are Rory and Becca Groves. Ten years ago we moved our family to the country with the hopes of building a more durable, self-sufficient life. The most important lesson we learned is how to work together, as a family.

We founded Gather & Grow Ministries to help other families build their own family economies and become better prepared for the days that are ahead.
