Baltimore GROW Centers

  GROW Center Pop-up #1  GROW Center Pop-up #4 Fall 2018

Baltimore GROW Centers (Green Resources & Outreach for Watersheds) are your neighborhood greening resource hubs, linking city residents, communities, and faith-based groups to plants, materials, and technical expertise for greening projects. Over the past two years we have provided free and/or low cost trees, mulch, plants, and other materials, as well as free workshops on topics including community greening, vacant lot revitalization, installing rain gardens and rain barrels, environmental justice, and composting.

Funding for the GROW Center pop-ups, as well as the creation of a feasibility study and business plan, is provided in part by the USDA Forest Service. USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender.


Mini-GROW Center Pop-up Saturday, October 3, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Fall is a great time to be (safely) planting trees and re-mulching gardens. To help with this, the GROW Center is partnering with DPW’s Shredding and Recycling Drop-Off event on October 3, 9 a.m.- 1p.m. at 2801 St. Lo Drive (for more information CLICK HERE) We will have free trees and mulch (courtesy of TreeBaltimore) as well as handouts and other information to help you with your cleaning and greening activities at home and in your community.

Trees and mulch are available on a first come basis. If possible, please bring your own container or bag for mulch.

Masks are required. We will be practicing COVID-19 protocols for your safety.
