“Bronx resident Tony Hillery founded Harlem Grown, turning an abandoned urban space into an “urban farm” using farming skills he learned on the Internet. Harlem Grown inspires youth to live healthy and ambitious lives through hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability and nutrition. On Wednesday, June 8, 2016, Yankees players Masahiro Tanaka, Andrew Miller, Michael Pineda, Ivan Nova, Austin Romine, Chasen Shreve, Kirby Yates and Richard Bleier surprised Hillery with a visit and a $10,000 donation to Harlem Grown. Hillery was also invited to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Wednesday night’s game against the Angels. (Credit: Yankees on Demand (@YankeesonDemand))”
