Harlem Seeds Cultivating the Seeds of tomorrow, one child at a time.
Harlem Seeds was founded by sisters Michele Hatchette and Stephanie Mack, who were born and raised in Harlem. Deeply committed to their community and its youth, the organization was established to address the most pressing health issues facing Harlem children today. Understanding their responsibility and call to service Harlem, the organization seeks to enrich the community that gave so much to them.
At this time when children in Harlem are suffering from obesity and diabetes at high rates, Harlem Seeds recognizes that we must act now to save our youth. In our community there are often many reasons people say they cannot invest in healthy food or are simply not aware of the negative effects certain foods can have on ones health. This is due in large part to lack of exposure and resources. Harlem Seeds is driven to break this trend by working with kids to understand the growing process from seed to table. We do this through hands on learning as kids work in a garden and prepare nutritious meals.
Children are the seeds of our future and Harlem Seeds is dedicated to nourishing their roots so they may mature into healthy, positive leaders of our community.
