Baltimore GROW Centers
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.
GROW Center pop-ups for SPRING 2020 are CANCELLED
Everyone across Baltimore is making sacrifices right now to keep our communities safe from COVID-19. As a result, the Spring GROW Center pop-ups have been cancelled. However, we won’t stop thinking about ways to work together with residents to create a greener and healthier city.
We are continuing to think of ways to make sure the GROW Center vision keeps growing. Please check back for updates.
