We are going back to Harlem Grown!
Harlem Grown is a non-profit organization whose 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 fulfills this mission by supporting the physical renovation of abandoned lots in Harlem, transforming them into thriving urban farms.
One of the issues they are having in supporting their education and renovation missions is water and its drainage on the 134st lot. The build up of water is impeding progress and causing damage to the farm and the chicken coop. So we are going to get dirty and repair it!
We will be fixing the drainage for Harlem Growns wash station and helping with a gutter for the chicken coop's rain water catchment, along with other refurbishments that they need.
So come out and help the water flow freely for the chickens and the youth at Harlem Grown!
What To Wear :
Clothes you don't mind getting dirty.
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
