Harlem Grown, New York City
After a busy week conquering kitchens all across New York City, our campers will get a chance to find out exactly where their food comes from. We’ll be spending the day harvesting, tasting, and exploring an urban farm operated by Harlem Grown, a nonprofit organization on a mission to inspire youth to lead healthy lives. The culinary creativity of Sprouts campers plus the farming expertise of the Harlem Grown team will make for an extra memorable day of camp! Can you imagine a more dynamic (and delicious) duo? With programs that focus on mentorship, hands-on farming, and education in sustainability and nutrition, Harlem Grown is working hard to make the NYC community a greener place. Ciara Sidell, the Farm Manager and Educator at Harlem Grown, shared with us how her work on programs in mentorship, hands-on farming, nutrition, and sustainability are making the Harlem community a greener place.
