8th Annual Community Gardening Day at the Conservatory - May 23, 2019

Help us plant the outdoor garden beds at the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens in Baltimore's historic Druid Hill Park! With your help, we can get a month's worth of work done in just 1 day.

We will be doing a large planting activity to get our beds ready for the season. We need help planting annuals & tropicals, watering, and mulching the beds. We also need a few people to help grill lunch for the group.

We will be forming teams, and each team will have a leader from our staff to help get the beds planted according to plan and provide training. 

The beds will already be prepped, and the design for each bed will be mapped. Team leaders (Horticulture Division Staff) will organize their groups to lay out the plants according to plan, dig them in, water, and mulch the beds. 

We will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and work until around noon, followed by lunch. Please arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 for registration and coffee. 

Lunch will be served! Hot dogs with fixins, chips, and beverages will be the bill of fare.
