Greenhouse Vocational Program
In existence since June 2012, the CLCC Greenhouse Program provides:
- Vocational Training
- Educational Opportunities
- Engaging Horticultural Experiences
The program is designed for adults with developmental disabilities. On average, our clients spend 2-3 hours in the greenhouse per week, obtaining vocational training in planting, gardening and developing physical and social skills to prepare them for daily life in the community and to increase the employability of participants.
The primary goal of the Greenhouse Program is to intentionally engage participants in growing microgreens, staying focused on the task at hand and working with others in a shared setting. Microgreens and other produce grown in the program are sold to local restaurants and individuals in our community to sustain the greenhouse operations and generate revenue to further serve those with developmental disabilities. The Greenhouse Program provides a social outlet, meeting place, and skill building activity for our participants.
We currently sell microgreens to the following restaurants:Flora
Ken's Corner Breakfast & Lunch
Trattoria da Lepri
Take Five Cookery
Vinted Wine Bar
Max Oyster Bar
The Pond House Cafe
Trattoria Da Lepri

More about our greenhouse
The greenhouse creates a sustainable, agricultural micro enterprise for the future CLCC farm community by distributing to restaurants, small businesses and locals through our farm stand.
By offering fresh, locally grown microgreens, CLCC is generating customer loyalty and benefiting the growers through a respectful and engaging work setting.
Please reach out to us to learn more about volunteering in our greenhouse. Volunteer opportunities are limited.
We are currently offering a microgreen CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)!
