“Growing Healthy Brains and Communities”

Growing Healthy Brains and Communities

“Growing Healthy Brains and Communities” is an outreach program from Tommy Vaughan and Columbia University’s Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.  Professor Vaughan, already an established gardener at the Columbia University campus, teamed up with local Harlem community advisors and Girl Scout troop 3406 of the Greater New York Council. Planting started on Earth Day 2023 at the Grant House garden in Harlem. After two months of watering and weeding, they harvested their leaf lettuce, radishes, peppers, tomatoes, and snow peas.
