The Spirit of a Nation

The spirit of small towns across America reflects the spirit of a great nation. It is from these grass roots that the values and traditions of the American people were born and exist to this day. Here at Main Street USA, we tell the story of "Small Town America" its people, and the part it plays in the American ethos. America is Growing, with your support, can make a difference. Join us as we address change through the development of economic, social, and Healthy Lifestyle programs in small towns across our great nation. Our outreach to community representatives will allow us to gather the stories of their towns, stimulate cottage industry efforts through our Country Store, and promote Healthy Lifestyle choices through timely commentaries. We live in a time where communication must take center stage, where voices need to be heard, stories need to be shared, and a growing divide healed.

America is Growing believes that at both a national and community level, our country is facing challenges and embracing new concepts that directly impact our health, environment and American ingenuity. Facing challenges and effecting change is not unprecedented. There have been many times in American history when the need to answer a "call to service" was urgent. From the days of the Victory Gardens to the response to disasters, both natural and man-made, Americans have responded.

It can be said that the heart and spirit of America takes strength from serving in times of need. With such issues as the epidemic of childhood obesity, the search for alternative energy sources, and the need to stimulate American industry, that time is now. America is Growing is watching as people across our country are starting to unite and work together to create a better and healthier future. School programs teaching gardening, the advantages of nutritious food, farming as a career, community gardens, environmental awareness, farmer’s markets and a drive to create Green and "Made in America" products are all part of this new developing picture.

It is our intent to tell the stories of these efforts, support the programs they represent, and focus on the positive ways people are creating change. We urge you to heed this new "call-to-service" and become involved. The time is now to plant the seeds for a new and healthier tomorrow.

The proceeds from our online country store, donations, alliances with major suppliers and our annual event “Celebrate Main Street USA” combine to support America is Growing. We pledge to continuously promote the people who live in the heartlands of America, people who no matter what challenges they have had to face, find ways to support each other, their communities and their country.
