Get Out and Garden

Bring the family and help create a healthy, green environment for kids. Get raised beds ready for planting. Plant seeds and transplants, spread woodchips, shovel top soil, and get rid of weeds. Kids 10 to 17 need a signed waiver; check with the team leader to learn more.

Concrete Safaris empowers children and youth in East Harlem to be healthy leaders through green exercise programs that enrich the mind, body, community & environment. Since 2008, 7-11-year-old children enrolled in Concrete Safaris year-round programs and living in East Harlem have learned how the physical environment where they live, learn, and play, impacts their health. Concrete Safaris participants make major programmatic decisions, adding gardening, running, cycling, fishing, hiking, and swimming to our curriculum while addressing disease prevention from the child's perspective.
