John Eager Howard students enjoying their salads at German Park (10/24/12)

In 2011 we hosted Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake at Whitelock Community Farm for National Food Day. So how could we top that in 2012? Invite all 160+ students in grades 1-5 from John Eager Howard Elementary School to tour Whitelock Community Farm and assemble a fresh salad made from locally grown lettuce and radishes, along with peppers, tomatoes, and carrots!

Students started by visiting the Farm to learn what neighbors are growing:
