Urban Farm Fair

catch of the day fish (2)It truly is harvest time here in Maryland, and thanks to the amazing work of local gardeners and urban farmers, that’s just as evident in the heart of the city as it is out in the rolling countryside. There’s so much food being grown and harvested right here in Baltimore that it kind of blows our minds, actually. Almost every local urban farm is always happy for volunteers and to provide folks with information and education about growing your own food, organic farming, and nutritious, seasonal eating. And nowhere is that more apparent than at the Real Food Farm’s annual Urban Farm & Food Fair– an outright celebration of all things urban farming.

Urban Farm Volunteer Day at Cherry Hill Urban Garden

Volunteer Day

catch of the day fish (2)Alright. Summer is almost over (sorry) and we know that some of you haven’t gotten your hands in the soil enough this season. Now, we’re not blaming anyone. We know that a trip to  Ocean City or Bethany Beach often trumps the desire to stay home for the weekend and weed the zucchini plants. And that’s especially true when we have access to such amazing farmers markets. Why grow your own when there are so many local folks who do it so well for you, right? Sure. But, this Saturday we’re encouraging you to get out to Cherry Hill Urban Garden and lend a hand– both for the garden’s benefit, of course, and your own.
