Mighty Greens is a youth-led garden-based entrepreneurship program. They 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 a food business. Their cooperative members are primarily students from Eastern Senior High School, Cardozo High School and the University of the District of Columbia. They make a variety of value-added products using herbs from the garden that are for sale at their online shop here.

Eastern High School is the boundary school for many of our customers in SW DC. Dreaming Out Loud is proud to support our neighborhood youth and entrepreneurship efforts by offering market access for Mighty Greens to promote and sell their locally grown products!
