Carver Community Garden, located in East Harlem, is a large four lot garden that has been growing vegetables for over 11 years. The garden is also used by a local day care center as place to learn and play. During previous harvest seasons, local Harlem children would pick tomatoes and vegetables while learning about urban gardening. All of the harvested crops would be given to elderly community members and those in need. However, the garden is now in need of vital repairs and the space is no longer usable for children in Harlem. The Mission Continues Harlem 1st Platoon is mobilizing to help! On August 25th, we are going to revitalize this urban center of farming and learning for children! During this day of service, we will be building a variety of unique garden beds, building a pathway to make the space accessible and usable for gardening and playing, and assisting with various farm tasks. With our combined efforts, we'll continue the Harlem Platoon's mission to renovate multiple farms so that Harlem residents can learn about agriculture and have access fresh locally grown produce. So come on out and make a difference in East Harlem!
