Please Join Us for the West Baltimore Community Harvest on Saturday, September 19 from 8 AM to NOON!

The West Baltimore TOD/Transportation, Inc is putting on a community harvest at the West Baltimore MARC station lots. The event will include a farmers market, informational booths, a community planning and vision area, and craft workshops for the kids. “There will be something for everyone,” says Joyce Smith, Executive Director of Operation ReachOut SouthWest and co-chair of the West Baltimore MARC TOD/Transportation, “we want to present information that is action-oriented, like Associated Builders and Contractors will be out to talk about their Jump Start construction apprenticeship program, along with Living Classrooms which offers the Project SERVE job training program.” Other groups will include Neighborhood Housing Services of Baltimore and Habitat for Humanity. One of the highlights will be a farmers market featuring organic and local farmers, and most accept WIC and Senior FMNP checks. For the kids and young at heart, Black Cherry Puppet Theater is scheduled to perform and hold puppet making workshops for the kids. Please don’t forget to check out the community planning and vision area, which will feature the revitalization plans for the West Baltimore MARC area.
