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.
