About

Great Kids Farm is in need of motivated and hard-working Landscape Volunteers to assist with our year round grounds maintenance and beautification. We are a 33-acre outdoor learning laboratory that provides Baltimore City Public Schools’ students with hands-on, real world experiences. The Farm engages students from pre-kindergarten through graduation in programs that begin with experiential learning visits and culminate in career pathways. Approximately 3,500 City School students utilize the farm annually to connect classroom curriculum to the world around them through experiential learning. Great Kids Farm would not be able to provide these experiences to students without the generous donation of time and talent from volunteers like you! Our beautiful campus is a huge attractor for visitors and students to the farm, and we need help keeping it beautiful! As a volunteer, you will assist the farm manager in caring for perennials, as well as cultivation, mulching, and pruning of vegetable and ornamental beds. If you have a knack for organization, we also need lots of help organizing and maintaining order in our tool shed. Landscape volunteer hours are currently on Wednesdays from 9am-11am. The Farm operates Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm.
