TEAM GARDENS HISTORY
While playing football at the University of Michigan, Vincent Smith and Martavious Odoms decided to start a group project dedicated to helping the communities grow sustainably. The idea to plant rain gardens and small urban farms became a focus for the star football players as they explored ways to make a meaningful impact on their own communities.
Creating a green space for their own community, Vincent Smith continues to grow and impact communities in Michigan. We are dedicated to creating greenspaces in all athletes backyards so that we can use our college education to create realistic and replicatible changes.
