What a Summer Season!
For those who haven't visited the garden since the beginning of summer, the next time you stop by, you will be absolutely shocked!
As the school year came to an end, our student gardeners cooked their harvest of Potatoes, Onions, Brussels Sprouts, Peppers and Greens into a delicious campfire meal.
The first class was around 15 high school students working through Youth Works. In their month at the garden they planned and planted a native fruit bush orchard. They drew a to-scale map of their site, amended the soil, planted the plants, built and installed bench seating and painted the new shed.
All of us at Filbert Street Garden are excited for the fall-
We will be working closely with students from UMBC and Towson to bring this beautiful space even closer to the community!
