Fulbright Volunteering with Harlem Grown on Urban Farming & Sustainability

Get ready to roll up your sleeves and take part in a meaningful service learning project with Harlem Grown, an organization that inspires people to lead healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hand-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition.

 

Our topic for our volunteer day will be "Building Communities." We will start with an introduction to Harlem Grown, urban farming and sustainability. We will also discuss our service topic and how it connects to the work that Harlem Grown is doing. We will then take a sensory tour of the farm site visiting their chicken coop, greenhouse and exploring their urban farm ecosystem. After the tour, everyone will participate in a hands-on volunteer task that is connected to "Building Communities." We will then end the visit with a call to action that scholars can take and implement into their own lives.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the commitment of local organizations in furthering the education of a more sustainable New York. We hope to see you and your family there!
