Can you believe we got over 700 applications for the HYG program!!! Here is the new Spring 2021 Harlem Youth Gardeners cohort who began working in #morningsideparknyc today! Thanks to the @nycparks staff for all their assistance in helping our amazing HYG Coordinator Christina in planning their work and providing valuable training for the team. In upcoming weeks they will also work in the other #historicharlemparks of #stnicholasparknyc, #jackierobinsonparknyc, and #marcusgarveyparknyc

Thanks to the philanthropies of the #nycgreenfund administered by @cpfnyc for funding for this amazing program along with additional funding by the @westharlem_dc

This has been such a tremendous employment and educational opportunity for our youth. Again, we had close to 700 applicants for 9 spots. We hope we can continue and expand the program this summer! If you or someone you know has fundraising connections or knows corporate sponsors in search of great causes to support, we’d love to connect!
