Growing Opportunities for All People

Lettuce Dream, a social enterprise, provides career education and grows community inclusion opportunities for people with disabilities.

People of all abilities have equal access to achieve their career goals and contribute to their community. We empower individual potential through innovative career programs and community inclusion while growing fresh hydroponic produce year-round.

A Promise to Make the Dream Come True
Together, the mothers began strategizing how the idea of inclusion could extend into their children’s adult lives. They dreamed of a day where their children could expand their education after high school and saw a future of fulfillment for them. Sadly, at this phase, one of the mothers was struck with cancer. Before her passing, she promised to do what she could from heaven if only her friend, Diane, would continue making efforts here on earth. Diane has kept that promise and Lettuce Dream is the unfolding reality to prove it. Lettuce Dream is built on the idea that individuals with developmental and cognitive disabilities have a lot to give and that everyone is better off when they are an integral part of the wider community. These two mothers have made good on the promises they made to each other and we are witness to their dream coming true.
