The Grow Cart was created by Hannah Merchant '13, who majored in Woodworking and Furniture Design and minored in Public Engagement. This mobile farm stand was designed in partnership with Cultivating Community for her Public Engagement Capstone project. The Grow Cart is used to deliver local organic produce and supports Cultivating Community's Eldershare and Farmshare distribution efforts in the city of Portland.

In the most recent MECA Magazine, we profiled our Public Engagement program and created a timeline that documents the history starting in 1989.
