Mission Statement

Growing a sustainable community through education, wholesome food and healthy, active living.

The Greenhouse Project, located in the James Barrett McNulty Greenhouse in Nay Aug Park in Scranton, exists to grow a sustainable community through education programs, wholesome food priorities and healthy living initiatives. Their goal is to educate children and adults about horticulture and health, prevent disease through diet and active lifestyle and support locally-grown food and responsible food policy.

The Greenhouse Project’s in-house plant, herb and flower sales help sustain their mission and teach others while doing so. In addition to being a source of organic vegetable transplants and flowers for city and county residents, they donate to and beautify Nay Aug Park, community gardens and Scranton City Hall. Their many programs also benefit local hunger projects and at-risk members of the community. They manage two community gardens and a teaching garden.

Through partnerships with schools, farmers, local businesses, non-profits and area residents, The Greenhouse Project provides a variety of educational opportunities and supports local food systems. The Greenhouse also offers a variety of volunteer gardening opportunities for all levels of experience.
