Mission

Harlem Grown Tot Lot

39 W 131st St (Btwn Malcolm X Blvd and 5th Ave)
New York City, NY 10031

Event Overview

Harlem Grown's mission is to inspire youth to lead healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition. Harlem Grown operates local urban farms, increase access to and knowledge of healthy food and provide food to the community. The urban farm at 131st street, which has historically been used to to teach kids, has come under disrepair and needs to be revamped so that it can be better utilized to grow food and be more acceptable to youth when programming becomes available. So The Mission Continues is going to make that happen! We are going to be constructing a new urban farm for Harlem Grown that better utilizes the space and creates more farming garden bed space in the lot. So join us to continue to make NYC better! Charlie Mike!
