Location: Baltimore, MD
Community classes on topics like farming techniques, soil health, vegetable preparation methods, etc.
Youth programs: “designed to introduce participants to the Farm's ecosystem and sustainable growing practices, as well as issues of food access, nutrition and community health in Baltimore. Through hands-on activities, youth experience the full spectrum of work that happens at the farm. In the spring, we have lessons on seeds, plant growth cycles and food systems. Once it warms up, we have outdoor lessons designed around themes of harvesting, cooking, preservation, and seasonality. We work to build youth understanding of vegetables, tastes, and healthy snack options. Students gain an understanding of where their food comes from, and will form an opinion on the sustainability of our current conventional food system. They will be introduced to a local alternative, and will be given the tools to play an active role in creating a more sustainable food supply within their community!”
Farm Club and School Tours: “Partnership with the 3rd grade class at Dorothy I Height Elementary. The Farm Club makes a weekly trip to the farm to learn about elements of growing and how to maintain their own garden bed. By the end of the season, they are familiar with all corners of the farm and are harvesting from the seeds they planted.“
Student tours are also hosted on the farm.
Cooking classes: weekly cooking classes at local recreation center. Fermentation classes are also common.
