What’s a city farm for? (an invitation!)
Showing what food security can look like. Providing a safe outdoor space for children to learn about food. Offering meaningful work for neighbors. Building healthy soils. Giving cooking and nutrition demonstrations. Growing a local business, often woman-owned or African American-owned (or both!). Demonstrating the power of growing vegetables and fruits without the use of harmful chemical sprays or fertilizers. Trapping carbon. Saving the Bay. These are just some of the social, environmental, and community benefits of Baltimore’s urban farms. Now we’ve compiled our data into a report, along with a beautiful and informative story map that shows how four of our Farm Alliance member farms are working to end food apartheid in Baltimore.
You’re invited to join the Farm Alliance Community for a webinar for a peek at our report and story map, to share in the most up-to-date research on what our farms and programs are doing in Baltimore. The webinar will take place Friday, December 7th, at 3pm EST. The webinar is free, but you can sign up for it here.
