IMPACT FARM HARLEM
JUICE GENERATION IMPACT FARM
The first IMPACT FARM on US ground is now running in Harlem in New York City. The project has come to life through a partnership with Harlem Grown and generous support from Juice Generation.
Harlem Grown is an independent, non-profit organization with a mission to inspire youth to lead healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition.
Since 2011 Harlem Grown has driven the transformation of several abandoned lots in Harlem into thriving urban farms for the benefit of the local community.
The newly opened farm on 127 Street represents an exciting opportunity for Harlem Grown to construct their most ambitious urban farm so far - from the ground up - to transform a neglected city lot into a lush, green, urban agricultural community hub.The centerpiece of this new urban farm is the Juice Generation IMPACT FARM and it will be jointly maintained by the children, families and community members who come together to learn and work with Harlem Grown each day. Through this pilot project, Harlem Grown hopes to present a viable model for replication that can help to increase access to farm fresh produce throughout lower-income neighborhoods in the urban landscape. Harlem Grown’s vision is to transform this space into an innovative urban agriculture center and green oasis for the Harlem community.
