Community Greens

People of all colors discussing evergreen ideas.

Harlem Grown

We need more organizations like Harlem Grown. They look at the welfare of children through an urban garden lens. Groups like Harlem Grown engage everything from healthy eating to obesity with fresh air and exercise.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with Latonya Assanah, Greenhouse Manager, at the NYCHA Garden Conference about Harlem Grown and I’m looking forward to getting to know Harlem Grown better.

Uptown Restaurant Week

Stuck in a winter rut? Grab a friend and explore all that Uptown Grand Central has to offer during Uptown Restaurant Week Monday, January 23, to Friday, February 10. 

You’ll find specials along East 125th Street and Park Avenue for just $8! Offers are good seven days a week, from opening to closing time.

The Uptown Grand Central initiative is a collaboration of merchants and neighbors along the east side of 125th Street who work together to enrich the area through collaboration, research, and creative community projects.

About Community Greens

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view.
