About Our Farm
Whitelock Community Farm is a resident-driven farm in Reservoir Hill, Baltimore. Residents volunteer in exchange for produce and sell healthy and affordable vegetables to their community at a weekly farm stand. We believe that everyone has a right to affordable, healthy, quality food, grown in a way that is environmentally sustainable and socially just. The farm began in 2010 when Reservoir Hill residents converted a ¼ acre vacant lot into an active urban farm with the help of hundreds of volunteers. The continued support of neighbors and the wider community has spirited our vision to improve access to healthy food to low-income residents. It is our hope that the Farm will serve as a model for similar community-based projects, and will show city officials that providing land access and resources to neighborhood-driven projects is a sustainable way of revitalizing urban environments and building community. It is in these vibrant communities that new economies will flourish.
Farmer Profile: Alison Worman
Alison grew up gardening in the city of Milwaukee, until she moved to Baltmore to attend Maryland Institute College of Art. In 2011 she stumbled upon Whitelock through MICA’s and has been working there ever since. After graduating in 2012 with a BFA in Fiber and Book Art’s, she was eager to learn more about farming and became involved with the Beginning Farmer Training Program where she worked at Calvert’s Gift Farm. Now she is happy to keep her hands busy working the land and growing food to share with others.
