Food Justice @ Harlem Grown

Join us for an exploration of Harlem Grown, an urban agriculture center, with founder and director, Tony Hillery. Learn about the community effort to transform an overgrown and abandoned garden filled with trash, into an urban agriculture oasis complete with soil-based farms, hydroponic greenhouses, and school gardens. Today, Harlem Grown serves as an educational platform promoting increased access to and knowledge of healthy food for Harlem residents and providing garden-based development programs to Harlem youth. As part of this immersive, hourlong hands-on tour, participants will learn about hydroponics, soil-based farming, and composting, and of course, sample some fresh greens.
