Our Story

Green Environmental Outreach (GEO) is a Springfield-based non-profit group founded by Kenneth Tyree.  The group is focused on providing cost-free avenues to health and wellness made available to the city’s historically disenfranchised communities and neighborhoods.  Specifically, in an effort to proactively combat the food and medicine desert that is Springfield’s Southwest quadrant, GEO has launched a cooperative initiative to transform abandoned properties into community gardens maintained by members of GEO.  The gardens will provide healthy, organic, cost-free produce to individuals and families in the 45505 and 45506 zip codes.  Additionally, GEO is raising funds to construct and staff a mobile medic unit that will engage Springfield’s disenfranchised and predominantly minority neighborhoods, providing cost-free preventative healthcare options.  This particular effort is under the advisement of Dr. Surender Neravetla of Mercy Health Springfield Regional Hospital and is primarily focused on healthcare issues that intrinsically affect our African American population.
