2812-2822 Fox Street
Founded in 2008, the Remington Village Green (2812-2822 Fox Street) is a space for growing fruit, vegetables, herbs, native plants, and flowers, to promote community participation, wellness, and sustainable food practices. A rotating cast of about 25 gardeners cultivate and beautify the garden, and host events such as cookouts, art days, and Easter egg hunts. Community plantings such as fruit trees (fig, peach, pear, cherry, and plum), berries (blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries), asparagus, herbs, and hibiscus are enjoyed by all. Partners include Parks and People, the Church of the Guardian Angel, the Greater Remington Improvement Association, and the Center for Social Concern at Johns Hopkins. The gardeners hope to offer even more art, gardeneducation, and community celebration, and be an example of how hands-on neighborhood improvement efforts bring beauty and liveliness to formerly discarded spaces.
