BENEFITING: Green Scheme

Jerome Nesbitt

THE STORY:

The Green Scheme is fundraising to continue to provide leadership, education, training, and awareness on a wide variety of environmental topics from healthy living to green career pathways. Our organization seeks to engage and empower communities where poor health outcomes and poor environmental conditions are most prevalent to promote healthy living in conjunction with environmental justice issues. The Green Scheme now operates 17 urban gardens in the DC, Maryland and VA and is seeking community support to continue these efforts. Lincoln Heights is located in Ward 7, where the median income is $35,000 and rates of chronic disease and premature mortality are higher. The physical environment in less healthy communities contributes substantially to the high prevalence of risk factors and serious health conditions. These areas offer few opportunities for safe leisure-time physical activity and have many high-calorie, low-nutrition, convenient and low-cost food options.
