Baltimore Green Week & Real Food Farm presents:

The second “Who Wants to be an Urban Farmer” is a morning of workshops that provide the opportunity to learn specific production techniques utilized at urban farms in Baltimore, Maryland. Each workshop will present a different specialized tool to growing food for production in Baltimore City. The workshops will be focused on urban farming and production, and presented in a scope and scale able to be transferred to backyards and open urban green space. The best recipients of the workshops will be new urban farmers, and home and community gardeners looking to improve their operations with efficiency, diversification, and output.

 Topics will include:

  • urban chickens
  • scaling up with appropriate tools
  • installing irrigation for less labor
  • season extension
