Rooted In Social Responsibility

Greens Do Good is the first social enterprise vertical farm in New Jersey where all profits support individuals with autism.

Greens Do Good Workforce Development Program

The Greens Do Good Workforce Development Program provides job sampling to transition students from surrounding school districts, and the opportunity to gain valuable vocational skills.

Students help maintain and organize crops, package products, and take inventory of seeds, but more importantly they are developing life skills and hands-on experience that will lay the foundation for future independence

Employing Adults with Autism

The daily structure and personal fulfillment of a job well done is an integral part of life—one that is just as essential for individuals with autism as it is for any other adult. Yet, nearly half of 25-year-olds with autism have never held a paying job. Greens Do Good is doing its part to help change that.

Walk into Greens Do Good and among the stacked trays of basil, microgreens, and lettuce, you’ll see adults with autism hard at work. At the farm, these individuals spend their days planting, seeding, watering, and assisting with harvesting. Here, they can take on responsibilities that suit their inclination and ability—working at a pace that is tailored to their needs so they can do it successfully and independently.

“We are passionate about more than just growing high quality produce, we are a
diverse, supportive, urban environment providing adults with autism a sense of
purpose, paid employment, and meaningful participation in the community,” says
Chantelle Walker, CEO, REED Autism Services.

Approximately 50,000 individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) turn 18 each year in the United States—and at age 21, public resources for these individuals virtually disappear. They’re no longer eligible for state-funded education, and adult programs and services are few and far between. Without daily support, these young men and women can lose their acquired skills—from daily care habits like making their own lunch and getting dressed by themselves to crucial life skills like language.

By donating 100% of our proceeds to REED Next, a nonprofit organization supporting adults with autism, we will help provide continued education, life experience, and work opportunities so that these individuals can achieve greater independence and participate meaningfully in their communities. Greens Do Good also provides these individuals the opportunity to work alongside our farmers.
