September, 2014, Ms. Janelle decided to enter the "Fuel Your Dream" competition with NYC Business Solutions and The Brooklyn Greenhouse was chosen as one of 25 new businesses who would take part in their crowd-funding campaign. We were assigned to Kiva Zip and in just 4 days after launching our campaign, we reached our goal of $5000! We set a Kiva Zip NYC record! People in New York City and around the world support us! In April 2015, Ms. Janelle applied to the highly selective Urban Farming Education Apprenticeship on The Youth Farm in Crown Heights Brooklyn. She received her Urban Farming certification after 700 hours on the farm and is continuing her work to help our earliest learners explore careers in STEM fields through Nature.
