Harlem Grown

A perfect read for Spring, a real life Curious Garden. The story of Mr. Tony, a volunteer at a Harlem public school, who when volunteering could not help but notice the abandoned lot, a jungle of junk that sat neglected across the street from the school. This was what the students walked by each day, and stared out the window at. 

It was Mr. Tony who began to clear the decrepit, abandoned lot of garbage and debris. With the help of the community cultivated a thriving garden. An excellent true story about how one individual with an idea can make a world of difference.
