YC Connect: Carver Community Garden Revitalization

CARVER COMMUNITY GARDEN:
MAKING THE FLOWERS & VEGGIES GROW
August 25 | East Harlem, NY

Yale Community Connect joined the Mission Continues Harlem Platoon on August 25 making the flowers and vegetables grow at Carver Community Garden!

Carver Community Garden, located in East Harlem, is a large four lot garden that has been growing vegetables for over 11 years. During previous harvest seasons, local Harlem children would pick tomatoes and vegetables while learning about urban gardening. However, the garden is now in need of vital repairs and the space is no longer usable for children in Harlem. During this day of service, volunteers built a variety of unique garden beds and a pathway to make the space accessible and usable for gardening and playing, and assisting with various farm tasks.

Event Details
