Eagles' Wings Garden Center, Inc.

Eagles’ Wings Garden Center, Inc. was established to provide meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities who attend our Day Program. In July 2020, we began growing hydroponic lettuce and selling it to local restaurants. Through our Small Group Employment Habilitation Program, we have successfully employed eight of our adult individuals.

Our individuals take pride in delivering fresh, high-quality lettuce to our partner restaurants. During deliveries, they are accompanied by an Eagles’ Wings staff member who drives and provides assistance when needed. Our lettuce, branded as “Joey’s Finest Lettuce,” is named in honor of Joey Pike, the son of the founders of Eagles’ Wings. The organization was inspired by their journey with Joey.

We are grateful for the tremendous support from local restaurants and the community, who have embraced our mission and our produce. If you would like to experience the freshness of our hydroponic lettuce, please visit one of the restaurants listed below. Each restaurant is linked to their website and menu for your convenience.
