The 500 North Duncan Street Community Garden is a beautiful oasis in the midst of blocks of vacant housing and an environment dominated by concrete. This community food garden features artistic elements such as a colorful mural and a collection of birdhouses. This exuberant garden extends down the street, with containers filled with flowers and other plant life. It is cared for by many of the elders in the community, feeds the neighbors, and serves as an educational space for young people.

There are a number of projects that need to be completed to maintain and beautify this garden space including the rebuilding of a retaining border, building accessible raised garden beds for seniors, and creating beautiful and functional mosaic walls.

If you are interested in helping with these and other building projects in the garden please reach out to morgan.thapa@baltimorecity.gov

About Bmore Beautiful

Location:

1 N Charles St, Baltimore, MD 21201, US

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.
