Urban Farmer for a Day

I spent most of Saturday volunteering at the Oliver Community Farm, a new two-acre urban farm and orchard intended to serve as a sustainable, healthy resource of fresh produce for residents of the Oliver Community (in East Baltimore), many of whom lack affordable and adequate access to healthy food. The weather was great, the volunteers were friendly and dedicated, and the entire experience was rewarding. The event was hosted by Johns Hopkins Alumni Association and The 6th Branch.
