The Garden Gala: Bringing the Green Back to Filbert Street
Date: Sunday, May 18, 2014
Time: 4:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Location: 2640 St Paul Street, Baltimore MD 21218
Filbert Street Garden is a educational community garden in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay (Baybrook), the neighborhood that has a sister relationship with Heijplaat in Rotterdam. The garden has been under the aegis of Jason Reed, a participant in our Harbor Traces December 2013 artist residency. Filbert Street Garden volunteers and UMBC students (under the guidance of UMBC professors Stephen Bradley and Nicole King) are organizing a fundraiser for the garden.
The purpose of the gala is to raise money to create the new garden manager position for this important Baltimore non-profit organization. Curtis Bay residents need a garden because the area is a food desert, which means there is limited access to fresh produce locally.
