Gardening

For a number of years the Trust has had a vigorous Community Gardening Program to enhance the neighborhood through the planting of gardens on public parcels of land. Volunteers continue to design, plant and maintain gardens on median strips, intersection islands and a number of extended roadside greenways. A drive through the neighborhood will reveal how successful this program has been, and how much these efforts have added to the desirability of living in Mt. Washington. To date, the Mount Washington Preservation Trust has planted and maintained over 40 public gardens in Mt. Washington and it does so with the largest volunteer effort of its kind in the greater Baltimore area. Tax deductible contributions to the Trust’s Gardening Program, from both neighbors and area foundations, are used to purchase plant material and supplies.

Please contact us to join our gardening email list and hear about our plans. We generally meet on Sundays from 9 am to 11 am.
