You can’t grow what you don’t sow. We make it a priority to give back to the local community by planting the seeds that foster growth, connection, and nourishment.
We’re proud to partner with Harlem Grown, a local non-profit organization on a mission to help inspire children to lead healthier lives.
Founded by Tony Hillery in 2011, Harlem Grown provides mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition. Kids not only develop a healthy appetite for fruits and vegetables, but they also learn where real food comes from—and how to grow it themselves.
We’ve recently announced our most sustainable effort yet: An eco-friendly greenhouse for Harlem Grown!
This solar-paneled, 400-square-foot duplex greenhouse, made in Copenhagen from reclaimed materials, is one of only two currently in use. It takes up a fraction of the space of a standard, sprawling greenhouse—and will yield more produce in less space, year-round.
The greenhouse will reside at Harlem Grown’s new location at 127th Street—now the Juice Generation Impact Farm—where the staff, family, and kids at Harlem Grown will harvest strawberries, herbs, tomatoes, and greens, most of which is given to the children and workers; a small portion of which is sold to local restaurants.
We hope the Juice Generation Impact Farm will serve as a focal point and inspiration for similar efforts here in New York and across the country, and provide a model for future urban agriculture efforts.
The Juice Generation Impact Farm is located at West 127 Street in Harlem.
