Baltimore GROW Centers

GROW Center in the CARE community

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. These pop-up events provide free and/or low cost trees, mulch, plants, and other materials, as well as free workshops on topics including community greening, vacant lot revitalization, and installing rain gardens and rain barrels.

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 Centers are back with a twist! In addition to four Saturday pop-ups we will be offering four free workshops as well. For more information visit the GROW Center Eventbrite page. While registration is not required it is highly recommended (especially for the workshops)  so that we can anticipate attendance. Click here to download the 2019 Grow Center schedule.
