The Green Thumbs Project 

The Green Thumbs Project is a KCEP program developed in partnership with the Monkland Recreation Center and Kozroots Garlic and Herb Farm.  The program was piloted with Open Hands in 2015, and we are planning to expand the program in spring 2016.

At its core, this initiative is an inclusive program for adults and youth with developmental disabilities. There are many goals to this project, but the immediate ones include this population working in community to have their own community garden and sell the produce to gain a source of income, while also contributing to our communities.
