Nude Barre

In true entrepreneurial fashion—during a moment of frustration—Erin Carpenter founded Nude Barre, a specialty line of eco-friendly undergarments made in 16 shades of nude to match all skin tones.

Six years later, several celebrities have been “caught in the nude". From talk show host Wendy Williams who serves as a product ambassador to members of Bravo TV’s Real Housewives franchise and members of The New York Knicks’ Dancers.

As much as Nude Barre is a product that fulfills a need, it’s also a tool for women’s empowerment. “It’s a bold statement of validation to all women: you are beautiful in your own skin."

Harlem Grown

Harlem Grown is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire youth to lead healthy and ambitious lives through mentorship and hands-on education in urban farming, sustainability, and nutrition. Founded in 2011, we operate local urban farms, increase access to and knowledge of healthy food for Harlem residents, and provide garden-based development programs to Harlem youth.

Healthy habits start young, which is why our programs target elementary-aged students. Because food justice is more than just providing and distributing food, our model seeks to positively impact the entire community through mentorship, education, and partnerships to create sustainable change. 

One of the many ways we fulfill our mission is by raising support for the physical renovation of abandoned lots in Harlem, transforming them into thriving urban farms. Currently, we have 12 urban agriculture facilities ranging from soil-based farms, hydroponic greenhouses and school gardens.
