Session 3: June 14, 5-7 pm:  Accessing Land in Baltimore City

We will start with a facilitated discussion for urban farmers about land access and land tenure challenges and opportunities. Then we will bring in a panel to enrich the discussion, including Maya Kosok, the urban farmer of Hillen Homestead; Abby Cocke, from the Baltimore Office of Sustainability; and Becky Witt, from the Community Law Center.

This session will be held at the Baltimore City UMD Extension office, 6615 Reisterstown Road, Baltimore, MD.  Directions: For public transit, the office is near the Reisterstown Road Metro Plaza and on bus routes 53, 59, 58, and 60. For driving, if you are driving from the east, the best visual cue for the driveway is a Burger King followed by a sign for "DaVita Dialysis." From the west  you'll see a Checkers on the right-hand side of the road, and there is a left turn lane into the parking lot directly across from it. The parking lot is behind the building. The entrance to the office is at the back of the building. There are two entrances with awnings. Extension is through the entrance on the right, then up on the second floor. 

 

This program is a collaborative effort between Future Harvest CASA, University of Maryland Extension, and the Farm Alliance of Baltimore. Additional partners include several agricultural professionals and successful farmers in Baltimore, including graduates of Future Harvest CASA’s Beginner Farmer Training Program.


The University of Maryland Extension is an Equal Opportunity Employers and provides Equal Access Programs.
