Duncan Street Miracle Garden is in search of volunteers for ongoing assistance with our upcoming growing season. We are looking for gardeners/farmers of all skills levels who can help us to maintain our garden. We are also in need of volunteers with construction or mechanical skills who can help us repair our shed, pathway borders, and farming equipment.
The pandemic, as well as health issues faced by our garden manager prevented this historic urban garden from being able to produce any food last year. You can see media coverage about the issues our garden has been facing here: https://www.baltimorebrew.com/2020/08/15/dealt-a-blow-by-the-pandemic-duncan-street-miracle-garden-hangs-in/
The Miracle Garden donates 100% of its produce to local food pantries, soup kitchens, and churches. COVID has had a huge impact on many people's ability to provide healthy food for themselves and their families. Your work with Duncan Street Miracle Garden will have a direct impact on helping to increase the food security and food sovereignty of the community surrounding the garden. The garden is located in a community affected by the food apartheid so your work with us will also help to heal historical food injustices faced by the Broadway East Neighborhood.
Please sign up for specific volunteer days using this signup link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4ea8af23aaf8c52-duncan1 As of right now, we have Thursdays Fridays, and Saturdays open as our main volunteer days but if you want to volunteer another time/day during the week please send me an email at email@example.com.

We are taking extensive precautions in the garden to prevent the spread of COVID.

About Bmore Beautiful
1 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21201, US
BMORE Beautiful is a grassroots peer-to-peer beautification program. The goal of the program is to not only change behaviors and attitudes towards the beautification of the City, but to also encourage residents, businesses, and organizations to become directly involved in activities and projects that will keep their neighborhoods clean.
We work closely with neighborhoods on their unique beautification projects and cleanliness challenges, as well as provide educational literature, outreach materials, and other resources that residents can use to Keep BMORE Beautiful. There are six elements essential to our approach: community organizing, seasonal community champions summits, community improvement projects, troubleshooting, communication, and education.
We'll work with your schedule.
