The top lots are mulched!

More photo/video content to follow… we’ve got some great footage for our first Kickstarter video!  Don, Billy, and I got a lot of work done yesterday (Saturday) distributing our donated mulch (thanks, Asplundh) on the top lots around the raised beds and greenhouse.  Kenny did a ton of work building up the retaining wall beneath the natural wood railing at the west end of the top lots.  The watermelons, among other things, are looking beautiful! I also cleaned up and weeded the area around our beehive so it’s not so ugly and difficult to get to.  We’ve got around 6 weeks left in our growing season, and we’d really like the Ash Street Garden to look its best as the foliage starts to turn bright colors and we’re harvesting the last crops of fall.

Until I get some time to upload video from the regular video camera, here’s one I shot from my phone yesterday as we worked on the top lots.

Baltimore Free Farm

Welcome to the website of Baltimore Free Farm (BFF).  BFF is an organization of sustainable community activists in Baltimore, Maryland.  Our goal is to create a network of green spaces across Baltimore City, starting with Hampden, as well as promote sustainable living and a decentralized economy through a variety of cooperative projects.  Our pilot project is the Ash Street Garden, an experiment in urban agriculture.  Through our own dedication, hard work, and the partnership and support of the communities in which we operate, BFF is off to a spectacular start in its first year.

This is the (proposed) new website for Baltimore Free Farm.  I am still looking for the “right” WordPress theme, so your comments on how this looks are welcome.  Also, if you know how to make custom WordPress themes, please leave a comment.  We want your help!
