Green Spaces is an American green coworking space for socially-conscious businesses and entrepreneurs to develop their businesses.[1] Green Spaces uses renewable energy sources, on-site composting and reclaimed wood planter boxes throughout the space and is also considered a Zero Waste Space, recycling or composting 90% of its materials through Alpine Waste.[2][3][4]

Green Spaces started in 2008 by Jennie Nevin in Brooklyn, New York. The coworking space currently has about 250 members.[5][6]

Green Spaces is the first green coworking space in the United States.[7] They are also one of the first businesses to open in the RiNo Arts District in Denver.[8]


Green Spaces has sponsored events including a Green Business Competition in New York City.[9]

They created the GreenTernship Program which worked with disadvantaged youth with Billy Jean King. The Green Business Competition showcased top green start ups in NYC and awarded Gotham Greens a full year desk space at Green Spaces.​ The Competition was in partnership with NYU Sterns School of Entrepreneurship and ConEdison.[10][11]
