Help Baltimore’s Best Community Vegetable Garden


First there was a junk filled lot.  Then there was a community garden.  Then there were fruit trees, bees, chickens, and shrimp tanks -oh my! 

If you haven’t taken a tour of the Baltimore Free Farm yet, you are missing out.  The BFF is a realized vision for what farming an empty lot can do for a community.  It is also an education in sustainable living.  This week, Baltimore Free Farm was awarded Best Community Vegetable Garden by the Baltimore City Master Gardener’s Program.  In addition to being a great example of urban farming, BFF also hosts both fun and educational events, and, starting today, will be handing out free vegetables donated to them by a local food distributor (Follow them on Twitter or Facebook for dates and times). 

But that’s not all…

Now the folks at Baltimore Free Farm want to do even more.  -But they need your help for projects in the works such as: mushroom farming, rainwater collection, alternative energy and community composting, among other things.

Give what you can.
