In February 2022 we’ve had the great pleasure of training two new Roots of Success instructors — Program Director Christopher Hartsfield and Garden Educator Anthony Chaney — both of whom work with the Concrete Safaris program in New York City.
Concrete Safaris is dedicated to preparing youth in East Harlem and beyond to lead healthy lives and shape their environment through outdoor education, play, exploration, and community engagement. They have a wide range of programs for youth that include City Surfers, an after school program for youth grades 2nd through 5th; the Outdoor Leadership Academy for youth ages 14 to 24; and Green Exercises Days serving youth from kindergarten through 5th grade. We are so excited to be working with this highly impactful youth program!
