Real Food Farm Event:
Join us to hear from three speakers regarding urban agriculture in Baltimore City.
Real Food Farm is a multi-plot 7- acre urban farm located in Clifton Park and serves as a local food hub for urban agriculture in Baltimore City. Among the various ways that Real Food Farm distributes produce is its Mobile Farmers’ Market, that brings fresh produce to food desert communities in the city.
Farm Manager Tyler Brown and Education Coordinator Molly McCullagh will co-lead a tour of Real Food Farm and talk about the farm’s mission and the project’s social, economic, and environmental impact. Abby Cock of Baltimore City’s Office of Sustainability will talk about how her office, located within the Planning Department, has worked to promote urban agriculture in Baltimore City. Strategies have included changes to the zoning code, innovative programs connecting farmers with vacant land, and hiring a Food Policy director for the city.
