Lak Williams and Shaynah Twance

This podcast focuses on candid stories from youth who were all once part of Roots to Harvest, and illuminates how their experiences supported their overall health and growth while helping them develop lasting connections and friendships. A project of Roots to Harvest in conjunction with Great Big Stories Project through Frayme, Growing Through It provides a platform for guests to talk openly about loss, addiction, dysphoria, and many other important topics. Williams and Twance do a fantastic job of allowing each episode to unfold naturally, while embracing the power of sharing life-changing experiences and knowledge. In one memorable, emotional episode, the guest states that they “wouldn’t be clean today if it weren’t for the strong support system at Roots to Harvest” and then later says “the sky’s the limit these days.” Growing Through It is a vital tool for all of us, bringing forward much-needed awareness and a powerful sense of community.
