Harlem Community Gardens are pleased to announce that “HARLEM GREEN,” the 6th Annual Harlem Community Gardens Tour, will take place on Saturday, July 30th 10AM-4PM (Raindate: Sunday, July 31st). The Tour will begin with a breakfast in the Joseph Daniel Wilson Community Garden at 219 West 122ndStreet, and the last stop will be at the William A. Harris Garden on 153rd Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, where Tourists will experience a home-style traditional Harlem Barbecue.
The Harlem gardens, all managed by community volunteers, are among New York City’s most extraordinary and best–kept secrets. Tourists will discover an enormous variety of vegetables, herbs and flowers as well as ponds, gazebos, grape vines and fruit trees, rain-water harvesting & soaker hose systems, solar energized equipment, innovative composting methods, vertical gardens and more. The gardens are host to people of all ages. Some are shade gardens where folks can come to relax or cook a meal. The gardens run programs for toddlers, young mothers, youths and seniors; there are tutoring programs, environmental studies workshops, art and music events for teens and the community at large, as well as canning and preserving (including food fermentation) workshops. Some gardens also host Community Supported Agriculture programs (CSA).
