Baltimore now boasts 14 acres of “urban agriculture.” The Radnor/Winston community garden off York Rd. is a prime example of sustainability in action.

Charm City got a bit of good news with its recent “5-STAR” sustainability rating from the non-profit Star Communities. This non-profit’s mission is to assess and then rate a city’s environment, economy, and the well-being if its residents. Only Seattle and Massachusetts’s City of Northampton have won the highest 5-STAR rating.  You could take this honor with a grain of salt given our town’s recent events–but it’s useful to note that the sustainability rating system examines not only governmental efforts, but also community partnerships.
