Meet Conor and Lucas Hopkins, the Five- and Seven-Year-Olds Who Started a Plant Watering Business in South Baltimore

Meet Conor and Lucas Hopkins, the Five- and Seven-Year-Olds Who Started a Plant Watering Business in South Baltimore

Last summer, Lucas Hopkins, who is now seven, told his mother Amber Hopkins that he wanted money and asked how he could get some. She told him to come up with some kind of simple job that people might want. Lucas Hopkins had watered plants for his Riverside neighbors in the past and thought he could do that same service for more people. He got his mother, who is a teacher in Howard County and off during the summer, and brother Conor Hopkins, who is now five, on board and they launched Green Thumbs Plant Care.
