By popular demand, we are once again volunteering at an urban farm with Civic Works.
LLAM members and their family and friends are welcome to join us. Space is limited, so RSVP soon!
We had a great time last year! View the pictures!
What is the Civic Works’ Real Food Farm?
Real Food Farm is Civic Works’ innovative urban agricultural enterprise engaged in growing fresh produce on eight acres in and around Clifton Park in northeast Baltimore.
The farm aims to
• Improve neighborhood access to healthy food,
• Protect the environment and improve the watershed,
• Develop Baltimore’s agriculture sector, and
• Provide hands-on educational opportunities for Baltimore’s youth.
What to expect?
Our main task will be fixing a hoop house (tent-like greenhouse) that was damaged by wind storms. Other tasks in our shift may include planting, weeding, invasive species removal, compost spreading, bed preparation, fruit tree planting, and lots more.
There will be tasks for people of all physical and technical abilities.
Be sure to bring a water bottle, close-toed shoes, and work clothes.
When: Saturday, May 19th from 9am-12pm
Parking: Free parking lot
Bathroom access: Porta Potty
RSVP and questions: Julia Viets (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This will be our second-to-last event of the 2017-2018 year. Stay tuned for Spring Fling details in the coming weeks!
