BENEFITING: HARLEM GROWN

ORGANIZER: HARLEM GROWN

Paul Sacca

THE STORY:

I'm taking part in a '50k for 50k' Manhattan Waterfront Cycle Ride to help fund the development of a greenhouse at the Harlem Grown urban garden on 135th st. With the greenhouse, Harlem Grown will be employing & training unemployed mothers of P.S 175 children to grow and harvest organic baby lettuce; selling to local restaurants and distributing healthy food and in a community which has 50 fried chicken outlets in a 1 mile radius.

I have been volunteering at Harlem Grown for a year, and knew this was a special organization the day I met Tony and was introduced to Harlem Grown. Through a grass-roots approach, Tony and his team are instilling important lessons about sustainability and health, into an area struggling with access to fresh produce and the knowledge of its importance. His presence and effect in the community is clear - and with our support we can strengthen his mission.

Having an interest in agriculture and sustainability, I have a visceral connection to Harlem Grown's mission to create a network of neighbourhood farms and spread its produce and social benefits through Harlem. Co-founding Ceres Victory Gardens LLC, a small business specializing in designing, creating, installing, and maintaining organic edible landscapes, I understand the many benefits that local gardens contributing fresh produce can provide people, communities and the environment. After my time with the business, I spent time volunteering on farms, plantations and reforestation projects in Costa Rice, further enforcing my passion in the field sustainable agriculture. During this time I practiced the agricultural technique of biodiversity - which involves creating a symbiotic relationship between the flora and fauna of an environment to ensure quality and quantity.

All that said, supporting Harlem Grown has been a continuation of this interest. Tony and his team are providing essential education, and are inciting excitement and interest from their students. The results are impressive and tangible; I hope to contribute any way I can!
