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.If you’ve ever spent a day or two putting things in the ground and tending the soil, you know that it’s surprisingly enriching and an amazing stress reliever. Another bonus, is of course that it often results in the production of food (funny thing, right?). And we’re oh-so grateful for the amazing urban farms that have sprung up on the last several years that we want to give back a bit. And Cherry Hill Urban Garden is offering the perfect opportunity this Saturday. You can bronze out that late summer tan, learn more about organic gardening, and of course, lend a hand to a growing local farm while the season still holds.
Cherry Hill Urban Garden Volunteer Day is hosted by Slow Food Baltimore, and takes place this Saturday, August 30, from 9am-1pm. Cherry Hill Urban Garden is located at 900 Cherry Hill Road in Baltimore. For more information, or to RSVP (encouraged) visit www.slowfoodbaltimore.com.
