Sprout by Design is a New York City based, women-owned company whose mission is to "Design, Build, Educate, Grow". Co-founders Ilona de Jongh and Leslie Dweck work with an eye towards health, sustainability, social, environmental, and economic impact. Sprout by Design builds urban farms, gardens, greenhouses, green walls green fences, composting systems, chicken coops, and educational playgrounds for individuals of all ages and abilities. We pair these build structures with fun, hands-on workshops and curricula that use nature as a practical tool to teach design-build principles, STEM standards, and broader concepts like problem solving, healthy eating, and environmental stewardship. Urban farming workshops include: Outdoor gardening (in soil) Hydroponics Aquaponics Composting Chicken hatching & keeping In addition to having great educational impact, these activities have calming, developmental, and therapeutic benefits. We work with schools, community centers, houses of worship, detention centers, rehabilitation centers, special needs organizations, and elder care residences. Sprout also offers staff training and professional development for each program it creates.
