Hello Harlem Grown! I am a n…
Hello Harlem Grown! I am a new member of your team for the "Harlem Success Garden" and my own fundraising project "Books: By The People, For The People" will be donating funds to "Harlem Grown" if I can get it off the ground. Here's more info:

The Skinny - Click on my project "Books: By The People, For The People" to see my fundraising idea for "Harlem Grown" and other projects. Simply put, it would be a series of books written by the people, for the people. Each book would address a specific social, political or environmental issue/theme. Each contributor would donate a paragraph and a minimum of $5 using an online submission manager via the “Crowdrise” website to ensure that a donation was being made to a 501c3 charity/non-profit every time a paragraph was submitted (I am still trying to work out how the two systems can be integrated. Any suggestions? Let me know). When enough paragraphs have been collected and edited, each collection would be published as a book. The donation money collected from the creation of each book (the paragraphs) and the sale of each book would go to a specific 501c3 charity/non-profit relevant to the theme of a book in the series. Submissions would be open to anyone (one wouldn’t need to be a professional writer in order to submit). Each contributor’s name and city would be published with the paragraph. I would like the donations from the first book to go to "Harlem Grown", but that is up to you (and up to Mr. Norton).

The Phat - If you would like your 501c3 charity/non-profit to benefit from this project, please message Edward Norton and tell him about this fundraising idea. Please type "Books: By The People, For The People" in the subject field of your message. With Mr. Norton's clout and gift for motivating others to act, he could launch this project on a massive scale with the donations benefiting many, many causes including his own and yours. If he is too busy with other projects, he could then delegate the project to someone with equal clout, charm, and contacts.

Needs - The whole project could be run by volunteers. You would need an editing team and a team to handle the making/publishing of the books. You could self-publish using a system like "HP MagCloud" or, if Mr. Norton got on board, it is quite likely that he has some contacts in the book publishing industry.
Thanks for all the great things that you are doing to "repair the world" - (From "Leaves of Grass").

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Our Mission

Harlem Grown's mission is to inspire our youth to live healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability and nutrition.

Our Communities

Harlem Grown serves at-risk youth living in communities with high poverty rates and high unemployment rates.Of the families we serve, over 85% are living at or below the poverty line. Almost 1 in 2 (  46%) of our youth are either overweight or obese and 80% live in single-parent households.Our communities are modern food deserts wherein fast-food restaurants are upwards of 4X as prevelant as the overall urban average, and access to affordable, healthy food is limited.

Our Model

In the schools

Harlem Grown places mentors in partner schools to implement sustainable practices such as recycling and composting and to nurture healthy choices among students. Our charismatic mentors create youth Green Teams to spread environmental awareness and teach students about caring for the environment as well as for themselves. Their regular presence fosters a bond that enables our mentors to teach students personal responsibilty and self-development, which leads to improved overall wellness and health in schools.

On the Farms

Harlem Grown transforms vacant spaces into productive urban farms, using innovative agricultural methods to grow a vatiety of crops. We sell our produce locally, distribute it to community members, and use it in educational activities that promote healthy eating and nutrition. Mentors use the farms as science classrooms and as venues to cultivate a connection to the environment and food among students. In addition, our farms act as green havens, providing the wider community with an opportunity to witness and engage in local food production.
