Baltimore Civic Works is accepting applicants: Community Lot Team

The Community Lot Team is hiring Baltimore City residents, to spend approximately 5 months transforming vacant lots into community parks and gardens. Corps members will work 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday. For more information, contact Jennifer Borrero at or 410-366-8533.

Civic Works’ Community Lot Team transforms vacant Baltimore City lots, often sites of demolished houses that are filled with trash and debris, into thriving community gardens and shared spaces. A team of AmeriCorps members works with community members, volunteers groups, and local artists to create places of beauty in an often desolate urban landscape. The Community Lot Team only works in communities who are committed to participating in the creation and future maintenance of the garden.

Civic Works is Baltimore’s urban service corps and an AmeriCorps program.  To learn more about Civic Works, CLICK HERE.
