Help us use yoga to make an impact for sustainable living!
Harlem Grown is an independent, self-funded non-profit organization that works to connect local public schools to the greater community through the use of common garden spaces and mutually engaging activities.
We raise support for physical renovation of abandoned lots, providing the tools, supplies and manpower to physically transform wasted space into a vibrant garden classroom through a number of grant sponsored initiatives. We also work to engage pro-bono partners in developing a structured learning curriculum that lets kids participate from the planning through the planting, crop management and harvest and finally to food preparation, nutrition and even sales.
Harlem Grown’s mission is to increase the capacity of communities and students to access nature and green spaces, to engage these communities with nutritional and outdoor educational opportunities and improve access to a wider range of healthy foods while focusing on food justice issues.
We transform abandoned community gardens and park lots into vibrant urban farms in partnership with local public schools and the community, we integrate our small farms with school curriculums thereby providing inside-city students who are traditionally cut off from access to direct experience of nature and farming a chance to learn by doing.
