Students from campuses across New York got their hands dirty cleaning up a community garden with the non-profit organization Harlem Grown this Sunday, joined by enthusiastic volunteers from the Muslim Consultative Network and Progressive Muslim Meetup.  With saws, shovels, and wheelbarrows, the group worked hard to move over a ton of gravel, clear 100 cubit feet of branches, and plant 58 bulbs in under four hours!  The garden will be used by the schoolchildren of P.S. 175 to learn about gardening, nutrition, and the environment.

A big thanks to Tony, Hans, and Alex of Harlem Grown,  as well as our co-sponsors Faith House Manhattan, Park 51, and Religious Freedom USA.
