Volunteer Work Parties at Baltimore Free Farm are every Saturday from 11 am to 4pm.
Baltimore Free Farm is located at 3510 Ash Street, Baltimore, MD 21211.
We are easy to reach from the Woodberry Light rail stop. After exiting the train, head down Union Ave. towards Hampden and turn right onto Ash Street. We are about 2 blocks from there.
What to bring
- Wide brimmed hat
- Water bottle
- Gardening Tools – We have a fair amount of tools on hand, but more always helps!
- Snack – We often try to provide a meal to our volunteers, but a small snack is recommended
What to expect
We like to start the day by giving a tour of the grounds and explaining our mission to new volunteers. We then explain the projects currently being worked on and split into teams. Projects can include planting seedlings or plants, weeding and garden maintenance, crop harvesting, greenhouse work, building or repairing structures, small livestock care, soap making, food preservation, landscaping, screen printing, event preparation and staffing, cooking, and much more! To find out what we are up to this week, or for more information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BFF meetings occur every other monday at 7:30 pm at 3510 Ash street. If you wish to make a proposal to Baltimore Free Farm, or would like to learn more about collective decision making and how we operate the project, please feel free to attend a meeting!

Baltimore Free Farm hosts events of all kinds throughout the year. These events bring in much needed funding as well as foster a cultural element to the project. We believe that entertainment and fun keep people refreshed and energized and excited about urban farming! We are often in need of volunteer staffing for these events, so if you are interested, please email us at email@example.com. Check up on our events page for current information. Also you can check out our street team page to help promote shows and information about the farm.
Baltimore Free Farm does not receive funding from local or federal government, which means that we rely on our ability to fund-raise by hosting events and selling homemade products such as soaps, screen printed t-shirts and patches, musical recordings, and baked goods. These items are available through our website and at our events. Every event you attend or purchase you make goes toward helping us continue to operate. You can also make a tax-deductible donation to Baltimore Free Farm using the PayPal button located on the sidebar to the right of this page. If you wish to send us a check, please make it out to Fusion Partnerships, our fiscal sponsor. You can also check up on our fundraiser for information on our current projects and fundraisers. Baltimore Free Farm is an all-volunteer run organization, and any funding we receive is used to keep the Free Farm growing!
