IOC

Strength 2 Love 2 is an urban farm in West Baltimore dedicated to ending food apartheid in our community and assisting formerly incarcerated folks with their re-entry into the workforce.

As an essential business we are still fully operational, however unfortunately we are currently down two employees and are in search of 2-3 volunteers, preferably with experience in urban farming to help us meet our order demands.

This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to build on their skills in urban farming and sustainability and support the health of our community. Farm hours are typically between 8am and 3pm, we can take volunteers at any times within that window. Volunteers will be assisting primarily with harvesting and packing.

Mission Statement

Intersection of Change (formerly Newborn Holistic Ministries) is a community-based nonprofit focused on community development in west Baltimore. The organization is dedicated to providing programs that enrich the economic, social and spiritual lives of those dealing with poverty related issues in the Sandtown-Winchester and surrounding communities. Work to date has resulted in significant neighborhood revitalization of the 1900 and 2000 blocks of Pennsylvania Avenue through the full renovation of six previously vacant and dilapidated buildings, transformation of 18 vacant lots into community green spaces and meditative gardens, and the creation of a dozen neighborhood murals.

Description

Programs by Intersection of Change include:

Martha's Place: A recovery program for women overcoming drug addiction and homelessness that offers both a six-month transitional phase as well as a long-term independent housing phase. The program helps women achieve sobriety while maintaining a job and housing and serves approximately 50 women per year.

Jubilee Arts: A comprehensive art program that offers alternative to the dangers of drugs and violence in the community. Jubilee Arts provides art classes (in ceramics, visual arts, dance, and writing) six days a week and cultural activities to both children and adults and serves approximately 1,500 people annually.
