Project Serve Returns to Cherry Hill
On August 23rd, a group of twenty students from Towson University’s Project Serve spent their afternoon volunteering at the “Eat Healthy Live Healthy” Urban Garden in Cherry Hill. This is the second year Towson students have volunteered at the Urban Garden through the program Project Serve. Project Serve is an optional community service experience for freshmen and transfer students to spend two days volunteering in Baltimore prior to their first semester of college.
The students were introduced to the history of Cherry Hill and the importance of the garden by Ms. Juanita Ewell, who is the Garden Manager. The students helped wash, sort, and take inventory of produce for the Saturday Market, and spread fresh mulch throughout the garden.
It was a productive day for Towson University students and the “Eat Healthy Live Healthy” Urban Garden. Towson University continues to be a supporter of Cherry Hill Projects and is glad to continue the partnership to help new students become involved in the Cherry Hill community.
