Founded in 2011, The Green Scheme is a small nonprofit organization which encourages healthy living through community gardening and education. Since 2012, The Green Scheme has worked with residents to build and maintain a community garden in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Northeast D.C.. Here, the organization teaches seminars about healthy eating and living and helps local residents grows produce. In addition, The Green Scheme sponsors a “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” coat drive which collected used coats and clothing to donate to other local organizations.
