Old York Forest Garden Announcement

"This is the first of many announcements from the newly formed Old York Forest Garden, on the corner of 36th St. and Old York Road. Since we spoke at the Waverly Improvement Association meeting in December we have made some important progress in realizing this community garden project. We have ordered over 50 fruit and nut trees through TreeBaltimore to plant in the 36th St. lot as well as other spaces throughout the Waverly neighborhood.

In addition we have tentatively scheduled a workday for this coming Saturday, February 25th from Noon until we finish what needs to be accomplished. All are invited to come. We’ll be doing general clean up of the lot, from picking up trash to hauling what’s left of the brush that’s sitting on the property. Keep posted for any changes due to inclement weather, etc.

As far as other progress goes, we are seeking donations for tools, untreated lumber (for raised beds) and a modest fence to enclose the property. Please come out for the workday and we’ll keep you updated with more news soon."
