GreenHouse Foundation

CeeLo Green and his sister Shedonna Alexander have cofounded the GreenHouse Foundation to make “green education” more accessible to students in underserved school districts.  The GreenHouse Foundation also plans to launch other initiatives including an Atlanta Green Day, the Greenhouse Community Gardens Program and a Green Collar Career Development Program.

There was a groundbreaking last August at the Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. The Atlanta-born Green was back home for the groundbreaking at the donated “greenhouse” area where the school’s students have been tending to and growing vegetables. Green – born Thomas DeCarlo Callaway – is an alum of SACA.  The event, hosted by Art Terrell of KISS 104.1-FM, also included a performance of a spiritual from renowned Atlanta jazz singer Kathleen Bertrand and a speech from Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.  (Access Atlanta)
