GreenTeam About

The GreenTeam provides short and long-term vocational training to youth at-risk, young adults, formerly incarcerated individuals, and homeless youth. The team works year-round on projects that teach plant care, landscape design, and garden maintenance. As participants plant, trim, mulch, weed, and transform neglected parts of the city, they learn valuable life skills: responsibility, time management, and workplace professionalism. When the men, women, and young adults complete the program, they leave not only understanding professional horticulture but are empowered to turn their lives in a new, positive direction.
