Meet our Flower Bouquets!


Flowers are optimistic in their very nature-
staking this year's hard-won resources on next year's fertility. They are also gorgeous, fragrant, and occasionally edible reminders of our role in things, and our dependence on the folks we share space with. Members of Filbert St. Garden have had a lot of time to reflect on this recently- 

the TriVeggie students, garden interns, 
and community gardeners spend every Tuesday afternoon 
cutting flowers and making bouquets for 
Milk and Honey Market on Cathedral St. 
in Baltimore.

The plants we are clipping from- echinacea, boneset, pyeweed, bee balm, goldenrod, and the black-eyed susan, are all plants native to our area. These plants establish themselves as important supporters of local wildlife, and most of them have health benefits for people as well.
Stop by Milk & Honey for a lovely reminder that we're all in this together, and before you leave be sure to try the red goat panini... yum.

Mushroom Appreciation Day @ Filbert St. 7/20 3pm


Fungi (mushrooms) play a huge role in keeping our garden healthy, even if we don't always give them the credit they deserve. Come out to Filbert St. and show some mushroom love!
Bring a mushroom dish to share and help us grow more mushrooms!

We'll be doing some maintenance on our shiitake logs, and starting oyster mushrooms in plastic buckets. Guests will have the chance to build their own mini-mushroom farm.
$5 to attend, $15 to build and take home a mushroom bucket.
