This summer has been full of excitement for all of us here at the Harlem Childrens Zone. In the Garden and the Kitchen we've been growing lots of vegetables and exploring new culinary options for feeding our students and our selves with healthier, tastier fresher produce. As any local New Yorker knows, it's been a hot dry summer here in Harlem and our crops have struggled a bit to keep up with the heat. But the struggle always makes the fruit of your labor all the sweeter!

Our senior staff at HCZ has also renewed our focus on healthy eating, active living and we've been brainstorming many exciting ways to improve the programs and services we offer to our whole community to support positive change in these arenas. We are always looking for ways to further engage the community around making healthy choices accessible, affordable and easy. What are some of your ideas? What ways would you like our support? We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments section of this blog.
