Rapper/singer/songwriter Cee-Lo Green and his sister Shedonna Alexander are launching The GreenHouse Foundation, a new non-profit organization dedicated to making green education more accessible to students in underserved communities. The official kickoff is August 17th at Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, where Cee-Lo himself was a student.
“The Green Garden program will use outdoor gardening as an innovative tool to teach math and science. It will allow students to experience a new approach to “green education,” stated co-founder Shedonna Alexander. “We are committed to the mission to empower children with the knowledge, attitude and desire to positively influence their futures, their communities and the long-term sustainability of their planet.”
The kickoff will feature Cee-Lo, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Goodie MOB and jazz singer Kathleen Bertrand.
