“The typical community garden in New York City is volunteer-driven, we’re not. Harlem Grown, although we plant fruits and vegetables, we grow people. So, we take local people, pay fair wages with healthcare to be farmers,” said Hillery.

Tony Hillery founded and has run Harlem Grown farms in Harlem, Manhattan for the past 10 years. 

Before he started the farm in 2011, he had his own limousine company that served the entertainment industry
