From the Baltimore Sun:
The more than 3,000 residents in Baltimore’s largest public housing complex will be offered leftover produce and training in urban farming under a deal allowing the Cherry Hill Urban Community Garden to remain on Housing Authority of Baltimore City property through the end of the year.
Housing Authority President and CEO Janet Abrahams said the agency’s six-month postponement of the farm’s eviction from the property at 900 Cherry Hill Road “responded to our residents’ needs.”
The 3,042 Cherry Hill Homes residents “will now receive produce from the farm and be offered the opportunity to volunteer there,” Abrahams said in a statement Wednesday. “We look forward to having the Black Yield Institute [the farm’s steward] view our residents as partners for the remainder of the year, as the group looks for a permanent location.”
