General Hydroponics is proud to announce our partnership with Harlem Grown, a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire youth to live healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands on education in urban farming, sustainability and nutrition.
Harlem Grown teaches Youth Development Programs in Urban Agriculture and Sustainability. The goal is to encourage healthier lifestyle choices in children who are surrounded by a ‘food desert’ where it is a challenge to find fresh produce.
You are familiar with justice, are you familiar with Food Justice? Harlem Grown addresses the disparities in the local community for fresh produce by providing a steady source of healthy food.
General Hydroponics and Vermicrop Organics will be providing Harlem Grown with Aerflo Systems for their education programs teaching math and science through hydroponics using GH Maxi Series and GH pH controls. Vermicrop Organics will also be donating organic medias and fertilizers.
Everyone at GH and VO is proud to welcome Harlem Grown to our family and we commend Harlem Grown for their efforts to make our world a better place. Thank you for helping teach our children about sustainability and health through hydroponics and organics!
Be on the lookout this year for updates on the Harlem Grown General Hydroponics Vermicrop Organics Local Food Projects!
