An urban farming project begun in early 2014, Desert Farm Initiative is a catalyst for creating community-driven farms. At its first location in Penn North/Sugar Hill, there are 21 plots and 2 green houses. Motivated by the large areas of food desert in Baltimore, the Desert Farm Initiative aims to provide the local community with the capacity to run community gardens and have access to fresh food. DFI hopes to create four more community farms in other neighborhoods in the future. Volunteers are welcomed to help out with lot clean-up, build raised beds and hoop houses, and to become farm ambassadors.
