Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs
The Religious Coalition for Emergency Human Needs, which operates an emergency shelter and family shelter and offers homelessness prevention services, has partnered with us to transform some of their unused green space into a garden for its clients. With the help of Aramark Building Communities and the Coastal Studies students, we constructed two pilot vegetable rain garden beds in September, 2017. Funds from the Chesapeake Bay Trust and the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek will fund the construction of an additional 5 beds in the spring of 2018.
Housing Authority of the City of Frederick
The Housing Authority operates community gardens at two of its housing communities, Lucas Village and Carver. Residents interested in gardening are assigned their own plots and grow their own food each growing season, with the help of Master Gardeners and Housing Authority staff.
