Waterfront Kitchen Greenhouse at Living Classrooms

Location:  Baltimore, MD

Day Job:  Food Growin Machine, Munchkin wrangler, Gardener

The Digs:  Community Garden, Containers, Other

Crops:  Basil, Blackberries, Bok-choy, Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Chile Peppers, Collards, Corn, Cucumbers, Garlic, Gourds, Green beans, Jalepeno Peppers, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lavender, Lettuce, Mint, Mustard Greens, Oregano, Peas, Potatoes, Spinach, Squash, Strawberries, Sugar Snap Peas, Thyme, Tomatoes, Turnips

Why I'm Getting Dirty:  My job is the best job in the whole world. I work for a restaurant called Waterfront Kitchen, who basically employs me to maintain the gardens for a youth education program here called BUGS (Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students). Waterfront Kitchen takes any produce not used by the children in their integrated cooking and nutrition curriculum for use in the kitchen. A brand spankin' new 30'x44' greenhouse was erected in March to accomodate catered events and gardening classes, in addition to being the headquarters for the BUGS program. We grow microgreens for the restaurant, and utilize our beautiful raised bed gardens outside for larger crops. Raised beds INSIDE the greenhouse will produce through the winter. BEST JOB EVER.
