LPCA Compost Program
The LPCA is Partnering with the Baltimore Compost Collective on a program to increase composting in Locust Point. The BCC is a local service that collects food scraps from residences in Baltimore neighborhoods and composts the material at the Filbert Street Community Garden in Curtis Bay, where it is used to grow fresh produce and build urban food security.  They are also a youth entrepreneurship program that employs local teenagers and trains them in workforce skills, food access programming and community-scale composting. In addition, they have an all-electric fleet, minimizing pollution and GHG emission for a more sustainable Baltimore. The program is for LPCA members and easy to do. Just sign up for the composting service and the first month will be on the LPCA. We will send your details to the BCC and they will deliver a composting bucket to your house. Once your bucket is delivered, you need to complete sign-up process by registering for service on the BCC website. You will receive a reminder email from BCC to do this. The service is only $25 per month after your first month. If you are not a LPCA member, you can join from here. If you have any question, please contact Dave Arndt at locustpointcg@gmail.com or Marvin Hayes at baltimorecompostcollective@gmail.com.

Community GardenEfforts to Save Community Garden
The Locust Point Community Garden is a cherished resource in our community, it provides a space for residents to come together, grow their own food, and learn about the importance of environmental stewardship.  Also, it is one of the last green spaces around Baltimore’s harbor. Under Armour has decided to sell the garden space to a developer.  We are asking UA to work with us to find a way forward to designate this area as a garden and community green space. If you’ve not already, please sign our petition and show that we value our green space.

Sadly, Under Armour gave our bee keepers to the end of May to remove our bee hives. The bees have quietly been moved to a trailer and driven to a new location outside of the city. UA has stopped all communication about the garden, including inquiries from the media and  questions from the LPCA.

Please send the petition on to all who value green spaces and gardens. The petition results were delivered to UA via an email letter to UA by the Locust Point Civic Association. We want to work with UA to not only support their message around  Sustainability, PhilanthropyCommunity and Values, but to enhance it. Unfortunately, it appears they are only looking to sell this property to enhance their cash flow. We are seeking foundations, charities and others that have the capabilities to buy the land and preserve it as a green space that Locust Point desperately needs.  If you have any contacts or ideas, please email locustpointcg@gmail.com. 

New T-Shirts in Support of Garden
We have a new garden shirt for 2023, multiple styles and colors. This will not make enough money to preserve the garden, but is a lot of fun!  Please consider buying one to show your support.
