Hydroponic farm gives job opportunities to adults with autism, training to teens

REED Next is a nonprofit that provides assistance to adults on the autism spectrum. One of its latest initiatives is Greens Do Good, a vertical hydroponic farm in Hackensack.

“Greens Do Good launched in 2019 and we really understood that there was a huge need to provide employment opportunities for adults with autism and training opportunities for teens with autism to gain valuable work skills,” said Chantelle Walker, CEO of the REED Foundation for Autism.
