Mene and Jabari Khepera have all the time wished to assist their neighborhood. The 2 school college students have not too long ago discovered a method to depart an enduring affect on the folks round them, particularly at a time the place a few of these folks could have a tough time discovering recent meals.
“It began with the above-ground backyard we constructed for our mother at our home after she was furloughed from her job on account of COVID-19,” Jabari stated.
The 2 agreed it’s all about sustainability.
“We determined to construct two
gardens in our yard as a result of we felt it was very essential to have entry to
develop our personal meals,” Mene stated.
That concept grew into MJK
Engineering and Development Firm.
Mene is a school senior majoring in civil engineering and his younger brother Jabari is a sophomore majoring in political science/pre-law.
The 2 have constructed and put in above floor gardens in Oak
Cliff, Grand Prairie, Nice Grove, Forney, DeSoto, Glenn Heights and Cedar
“One space that’s of nice curiosity and significance to Mene and Jabari is Oak Cliff. Their maternal grandmother and grandfather dwell in Oak Cliff. This space is taken into account a meals desert and households in sure areas of Oak Cliff have restricted entry to grocery shops and recent vegatables and fruits. That’s why one of many first 5 above-ground gardens they constructed was for his or her grandmother.
