On Saturday May 4th, a group of students from Towson University volunteered at the Senior Manor garden and Cherry Hill Urban Garden. The students spent their morning working on projects that included planting, weeding, and harvesting vegetables.
Both the Senior Manor garden and Cherry Hill Urban Garden are growing an abundance of fresh foods such as onions, garlic, greens, and strawberries.
We expect nothing but positive things from both the Senior Manor garden and Cherry Hill Urban Garden in this growing season.

Towson University students participating in The Big Event volunteered at the Cherry Hill Urban Garden last week. TU students worked in the Possibility Garden, continuing the work of the student group from UMCP that visited earlier in March.
The Big Event is a day of service that takes place every spring at Towson University. The event is planned entirely by a committee of TU students. This year’s committee selected The Cherry Hill Urban Garden as a partner after one of the student planners volunteered there in the fall. She had such a great time she knew that she wanted to get more TU students involved!

On March 20th, the Cherry Hill Urban Garden hosted a group of students from University of Maryland, College Park. Their work was part of a week long alternative spring break trip during which they spent time volunteering at several local grassroots organizations in Baltimore City.
The UMCP students spent most of their time in the Cherry Hill Urban Garden’s ‘Possibility Garden’. The Possibility Garden was created to make gardening accessible for individuals who are not physically able to reach lower garden beds. The UMCP students installed a ground cover that will stabilize the raised garden beds in the space.
This upcoming Saturday, the garden will host another group of students from Towson University. The students will be volunteering as a part of TU’s ‘The Big Event’, a campus-wide day of service that engages over 500 students.
