It Starts with Community
For many years, Green Meadows manifested its community values through organic, sustainable agriculture. Our cannabis products reflect those same values, as does our dedication to furthering public understanding of how these products can benefit personal health and wellbeing.
But we’re about more than quality cannabis. People are our main priority. It’s why we emphasize veteran and diversity hiring. It’s why our team is personally involved with the local community. And it’s why we’re proud to continue the legacy of charitable support for which the Patton family has long been known. For example, in 2012 Benjamin Patton founded the Patton Veteran’s Project to help veterans suffering from PTSD and social isolation. Ben’s sister, Helen, heads up the Patton Foundation in Europe to promote peaceful interaction through cooperative efforts across borders and political platforms. Their mother, Joanne, a Green Meadows advisor on philanthropy and veteran outreach, was named an Essex Heritage Hero in 2013 for her support of area programs supporting veterans, special needs adults, and child welfare.
Our Commitment to Southbridge
We’re thrilled to participate in the revitalization of Southbridge, located just minutes off I-84, I-90 and Route 20 between Worcester and Sturbridge. Settled in 1730, the community became a thriving industrial center with sawmills, gristmills, and textile mills. In the 20th Century it earned the nickname “Eye of the Commonwealth” for its leading role in optical manufacturing.
Today, the town faces an exciting renaissance. A multi-million dollar renewal project has attracted new businesses and sponsors to its downtown area, portending a robust future. Green Meadows is one of those businesses – and proud to be so.
