Curtis Bay Green Team Works w/ Filbert Street Gardeners to plant Fruit Trees

In the spring, The Filbert Street Community Garden is going to be facilitating a mentorship program between Ben Franklin High School and the students at Curtis Bay Elementary / Middle.  Not only will this teach the students how to work together to manage a small orchard, perform energy audits, and grow food, but it will hopefully have a have a positive effect on the High School's low enrollment.

 In preparation for the spring, the Curtis Bay Green Team planted 2 paw-paw trees and 2 plum trees, donated by the Parks and People Foundation.

Sprouts Program... Round 2!

The cooperation between the Filbert Street Community Garden and Curtis Bay Elementary / Middle continues to grow!
 Both Ms. Ahmann's and Ms. Wells' class took the Sprout Mix Recipe they developed and used it to mix, soak, rinse, and measure the growth of their sprouts seeds.
