Our Story: Growing Dreams from Seeds of Change

In the early months of 2022, a group of environmental enthusiasts and community developers gathered around a simple, yet powerful idea – to combat food insecurity through sustainable greenhouse gardening. Our founder, Richard Schumann, an agricultural scientist and community worker, had witnessed firsthand the challenges faced by communities lacking access to fresh produce. The idea of using recycled materials to build greenhouses was his brainchild, which gave birth to TheGreenerGreenhouse.

Our first prototype, constructed using recycled 2-liter plastic soda bottles, was built in the spring of 2022. This pioneering greenhouse became part of a life-altering summer program at a camp for adults with severe developmental challenges, where participants engaged in nurturing lima bean plants. This experience showed us the boundless possibilities that lay within the humble structure of a greenhouse.


“TheGreenerGreenhouse has been a game-changer for our school! The students are so excited to see the plants grow in the greenhouse we built using their plans. It’s been an incredible educational tool, teaching the children not just about gardening, but also about sustainability and community.”  – Sarah

“I can’t thank TheGreenerGreenhouse enough for the support they provided in setting up our community garden. The greenhouse plans were easy to follow and the educational materials have been invaluable. Our community garden has become a place of gathering, learning, and sharing for so many.” – David

“As an environmental science student, I am deeply passionate about sustainability. When I came across TheGreenerGreenhouse, I was blown away by their innovative approach to greenhouses using recycled materials. I volunteered with them, and it has been one of the most fulfilling experiences.” – Robert
