Even though it never really felt like winter made it to Baltimore this year, spring has definitely arrived. This past Sunday 4/1/12 we hosted our first spring community work day, with volunteers cleaning, digging, and planting in and around Whitelock St. and Lennox St. Community Garden. Here are some scenes of springtime in Reservoir Hill:

To appreciate where we are today, sometimes it helps to remember what came before. Check out the difference between April 2011 and April 2012 at the Farm:
