Founded in 2012, Project EDEN™ is an innovative youth-focused aquaponics urban garden initiative that brings fresh fruits and vegetables, workforce development, and transitional employment opportunities to underserved youth and adults in Southeast Washington, DC.
Who We Are
With input and support from the community, Pastor Cheryl Gaines, Senior Pastor of ReGeneration House of Praise, envisioned a youth-led urban garden in Southeast DC that would become a life-changing empowerment initiative.
What EDEN™ Does
Beginning in 2012 on a 10 x 20 plot of donated land, Project EDEN™ has expanded to a 28 x 48 hoop house with aquaponics in 2013. Aquaponics is a system for farming fish and plants together in a mutually beneficial cycle.
