Smile Farms Inc. provides developmentally disabled adults with meaningful work opportunities at various locations where they can grow and sell flowers, plants and produce in their local communities.

One of Smile Farms 10 campuses is at the Rosemary Kennedy Center. There are classrooms that house indoor grow labs, and expansive garden areas outside where students grow a variety of produce. Some of which is used to make Heat with Heart hot sauce and some is even used in school lunches!
