Don’t spend your time asking “Why isn’t the world a better place?” It will only be time wasted. The question is “How can I make it better?”

– Tony Hillery, Executive Director


Who we are?

Harlem Grown is a non-profit organization founded in 2011 with a mission to inspire youth to live healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition. We operate local urban farms; increase access and knowledge of healthy food for Harlem residents; and provide garden-based youth development programs to Harlem youth. Check out our programs here.

We are growing food, growing knowledge, and growing future leaders.  Stop by the farms or send us an e-mail if you’d like to get involved!
