We are Mighty Greens...
...a youth-led, garden-based, entrepreneurship program. We are a cooperative of young people (ages 15-18) that uses school gardens and greenhouses as spaces to learn how to care for edible and native plants while growing our business. Our cooperative members are primarily students from Eastern Senior High School, Cardozo High School and the University of the District of Columbia. Throughout the year we grow, harvest, and share some of the freshest produce and products in DC.
