"Fabritory" Event TODAY on North Ave 5 p.m.
Baltimore Greenworks is really kicking off a huge week in support of Earth Day.
From small changes around the house to meetings about larger policy issues, there is a huge variety of ways to get involved.
Want to do something small? Go to the Herring Run Plant sale and put a few native plant species where your lawn used to be.
Want to do something big? Check out the Climate Change rally in DC on Saturday April 25th.
I definitely recommend checking out the details on their website: http://baltimoregreenworks.com/
I'll probably be going to the event on North Avenue tonight that's in collaboration with Greenworks.
One of the collective member of The Beet Bulk Food Co-op is taking a class with Hugh Pocock, a professor at MICA who has instrumental in a variety of urban agriculture projects.
I know this class was a collaboration between various Baltimore institutions, which is wonderful in and of itself. We have so many great universities and colleges in the area, and all too often everyone gets trapped in their own bubble rather than engaging in dialogue. Plus, working towards sustainability is always a plus.
Also, I'm pretty sure we're going to have some extra dry goods on sale from The Beet, so you might want to check it out. I hear there is going to be beet ice cream on hand!
Here's more information if you're interested:
