Northeast SARE Grantee-Produced Info Product
The Baltimore Farm Alliance
While Baltimore has significant vacant land, limited access to fresh food, and high unemployment, it also has strong neighborhoods and a burgeoning food movement. The idea for a network grew out of existing collaborations. Farmers were already teaming up on seed orders, lending tools, and sharing knowledge, but we wanted to do more. Operating a small-scale, sustainable, urban farm is challenging, and we saw the potential to increase our impact, earn more revenue, and save money by working together.
