The warmer weather brings more outdoor events that have our volunteers beautifying Baltimore. For our May event we will be soaking up the sunshine and helping out neighborhoods on the East side of the city. Waterfront Partnership and their Healthy Harbor initiative will be leading the charge!

All volunteers will meet at Library Square (158 N Linwood), the triangular park that sits in front of the Pratt Library, where we will hear from community leaders of the surrounding neighborhoods. They will share a bit about the area, what we will be tasked with, and how this work will impact the local community.

Following the introduction, our volunteers will be divided into two groups:

1. Tree Care from 2600-3100 Fayette Street: Volunteers assigned to this location will focus on tree pits and mulching. The trees along this stretch were planted by Parks and People two years ago. They need weeding, mulching, and a little TLC. Volunteers will also prep the Potomac Pocket Park for mulch by weeding and removing waste.

2. The Green Alley between the unit block of Potomac & Curley: Volunteers assigned to this location can park on the 2600 block of Fairmount or Baltimore Street. These volunteers will be power washing and scrubbing the alley in preparation for a fresh coat of paint. Assuming the alley dries in time, we will repaint as well. This location also has mulching work.

Anddddd now for the afterparty. This month we will be joining in on the Springfest Live! Craft Beer Festival activities at Power Plant Live!. The festival will have 100 different beers featured and runs from 3 to 7 pm (VIP opens at 2).

But we got oh so many specials for you guys. The first 50 attendees of the event we’ll give free tickets to the festival. Everyone else gets tickets for 50% off general admission AND VIP tickets (there will also be discounted parking at Pier V garage – validations available at Beer Garden). We get in at 1:30 and have drink specials at Leinenkeugel’s.
