Curtis Bay Recreation Center Day Camp
On Tuesday the Curtis Bay Recreation Center Day Camp experience a new activity with potatoes.  We created potato prints, planted tomatoes, and toured the Filbert Street Garden to learn about the Maryland State Flower ( Black Eye Susan), sun flowers, purple cones, and other native plants.  We also learned about native plants and saw the wonderful native garden at Filbert Street.  This summer was full of surprises at Filbert Street Garden can't wait until next week.

Mrs.  Edith Gerald grabs the carrots before Bugs Bunny!
On July 11, 2015, Filbert Street Gardener Mrs. Edith Gerald grab some lovely harvest carrots from her garden plot.  The blueberries are in full bloom, the blackberries are ready to be harvest and the plots are budding with vegetables.  This is the season that all gardeners love to see their garden bloom with fresh vegetables and flowers.  We've created a sweet potato bale under the direction of our host Ms. Kim with straw and compost.  You can experience this excitement if you attend our next Garden Work Day on August 8, 2015.  We're located at 1317 Filbert Street Curtis Bay, Maryland 21226 at 10:00 a.m..

Curtis Bay Recreation Center Day Camp
Filbert Street Garden had the pleasure of teaching the Curtis Bay Recreation Center Camp  how to make flower pots and plant seeds out of recycle newspaper.  The students will care for the plants and the whole plant and paper can be inserted in the ground once the plants start to grow.
