Park Clean-up and Bloom Your Block

sal w rakeWe had a great turnout for the Union Square Park Clean-up, organized by Salvatore Seeley. Thank you to all of our neighbors and friends who came by to help make our park ready for the spring and summer!

Immediately afterwards, we kicked off Bloom Your Block, giving away free mulch, compost, flower seeds, and trees. We also had visitors from the Baltimore Citizen Science Mosquito Project and The Compost Crew.

The Bloom Your Block Competition will be June 27. There is no need to register to have your home included in the competition, but don’t forget to add your Bloom Your Block sign to your pots to earn some extra points!
