EMPLOYEE/COMMUNITY GARDEN

Good Samaritan Hospital

5601 Loch Raven Boulevard,  Baltimore, MD 21239

June 19th, 1:00 – 3:00 pm


Good Samaritan Hospital built an employee/community vegetable and herb garden on its campus. Volunteers planted a variety of crops and donated a significant portion of the food to a local food bank. The goal of the garden project is to teach employees about healthy food options, creating their own gardens, and sharing the harvest with the community. Take a tour of the garden and meet the folks who planned it!
