The Howard County Branch of the NAACP has been a part of stewarding Freetown Farm since the beginning of the 2020 growing season.
Members have designed, established, and nurtured a bountiful vegetable garden from scratch, growing abundant kale, chard, okra, basil, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and more!
In 2021, approximately 175 volunteers helped out, with 40 families participating in the George Washington Carver community supported agriculture initiative!
CEI humbly acknowledges the Indigenous people who were wrongfully removed from their ancestral lands where we live and work today. We offer our deepest respect to the Piscataway Conoy Tribe and all other tribes Indigenous to the central Maryland region where our organization is based.
