Duncan Street Miracle Garden is in search of volunteers for ongoing assistance with the maintenance of our garden. We are looking for general volunteers, gardeners, and farmers of all skills levels who are passionate about food justice. We are also in need of volunteers with construction or mechanical skills who can help us make repairs to our fence, pathway borders, and farming equipment.

Volunteer Days are every Friday morning from 10 am to 12 pm. We also have volunteer days on every second Saturday of the month.
Please sign up for volunteer shifts at the following link:
https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0d4ea8af23aaf8c52-2022
We welcome groups as well as individual volunteers to sign up.

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.

We are taking extensive precautions in the garden to prevent the spread of COVID. We require all volunteers to wear masks and maintain a social distance with people outside of their households while working in the garden. We sanitize tools and frequently touched surfaces before and after use and will have hand sanitizer available for you to use during your shift.

Please feel free to reach out to me either at my email morgan.thapa@baltimorecity.gov or by phone at 443-401-9647 with any questions!

About Bmore Beautiful

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
