Harlem Seeds is dedicated to teaching children how to grow and prepare healthy food. Our organization is community oriented and through working with Harlem youth, we nurture their confidence and leadership skills so they can be advocates for healthy change in the community.

Our program brings to light the connection and impact that our consumption of food has on our health, environment, and community.

At Harlem Seeds we understand the importance and urgency to connect childrenʼs relationship to food with the growing process and agricultural practices. We bring the program to your school, church, and youth organization with offerings in the summer, fall, and spring with access to gardens and farms.

Harlem Seeds knows that healthy eating and living is a right, not a privilege. It is our mission to inform our youth and community that they have the power to choose to nourish their bodies with clean, safe, and healthy food.

Interesting Fact
Harlem Seeds knows that there are a number of organizations serving multiple needs within the community. We like to cultivate "seeds of change" and believe there is a benefit to leveraging existing resources. This allows us to support and enhance existing programs, defray costs, and provide more impact to our community. Over the past three years, we established and nurtured deliberate relationships with the intention of creating more access to sustainable food resources, educating children and families and empowering a community. We've selected food organizations, schools and churches, etc.
