Baltimore Adopt A Lot Program

Baltimore Adopt A Lot Program

It is cold and dreary outside, but in just a few months it won’t be, so now’s the perfect time to start planning your garden.  Don’t have a front or back yard? -No problem, with Baltimore’s Adopt A Lot program you can have your very own green space too!

The Adopt A Lot program helps Baltimore residents identify empty lots and transform them into a community oasis.  The website of Baltimore Green Space, a land trust for community-managed open spaces, is a great place to start for residents interested in gathering information about adopting a city green space.  Baltimore Green Space, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded in 2007 by a group of community gardeners who wanted to see their communities’ treasured open spaces remain available to residents.

Another good source of info is the city’s Turn A Vacant Lot Into A Garden guide.  You can download a PDF version of the guide: CLICK HERE.
