Garden Day Pictures and Updates!

For any folks who weren't able to make the Garden Day, it was a truly fantastic day!  Huge thanks to the members of the Curtis Bay community, Mr. Dallas' and Ms. Well's Classes from Curtis Bay Elementary/Middle, the students from Ben Franklin High School, UMBC, Towson, CCYD, Parks and People Foundation, the Knott Foundation, Open Society Institute, Child First Authority, and the Baybrook Coalition.  With the help of 90+ volunteers, we managed to finish the first half of the Community Nature Trail,

the CBEMS Green Team
(under the guidance of Mr. Toma Solano)
built Cold Frames to allow them
to grow food for their fellow
students throughout the
winter months,

and we prepared the garden for the changing seasons.

After almost 6 hours of work, everyone was ready for the music of local group the Dead Whale Ramblers, whose music made a great accompaniment to the campfire dinner of Pumpkin Stew, Hot Dogs, Veggie Dogs, salsa, veggies, and S'mores.

Many local kids cooked their first S'more, and got to hear the story of the 3 sisters, a Native American gardening tale, from guest storyteller James Electric.
