Mark Cuban‘s nonprofit is working with entrepreneurial brothers who build above-ground vegetable gardens to work their innovative magic in food deserts across Dallas, according to Channel 8. Brothers Mene Khepera, a 20-year-old civil engineering major, and 18-year-old Jabari, co-founded of MJK Engineering and Construction. Mom, Nia Khepera, handles scheduling. The business started when Nia was furloughed after the coronavirus pandemic and her sons built her a garden so she could spend more time outside. Father, Mene Sr., is also involved. Most orders cost about $250. “To get that kind of feedback and collaboration from someone like Mark Cuban is just a blessing,” Mene Sr. said.
