Hampden #55 Garden Kick-off

September 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Help Hampden go green! We are bringing a garden to Hampden School #55.

The HEMS Green Team received a grant from BGE to partially fund a school garden, both for plantings in the back courtyard and garden beds in the front school yard, including edible and pollinator plants.

This initative is also part of the school’s push to become an officially designated Maryland Green School. By “greening” our school, we will provide a healthy environment for students and staff, improve academic performance, and save money.

How can you help?

A workday on Sunday, Sept. 29 from 10 am to noon will kick off this project – we need all hands on deck! We will be digging beds, planting, mulching…we hope to see you there!
