BENEFITING: HARLEM GROWN

EVENT: 2017 CNN Heroes

THE STORY:

 While volunteering at a public school in Harlem, Tony Hillery was shocked to discover that many students couldn’t properly identify vegetables, let alone incorporate them into their diets. So, in 2011, he turned an abandoned plot of land into an urban farm and began teaching children about harvesting fresh food. His nonprofit, Harlem Grown, now has 10 farms throughout New York City, providing mentorship and educational programs for more than 4,000 young people each year.
