The clean-up at the City of Refuge Victory Garden in Brooklyn was organized by the garden’s volunteer staff and Wheelabrator Baltimore’s Green Ambassador Team.


Volunteers helped with watering and seeding the garden, as well as picking up trash from the surrounding area.

They say they did it to give back to the community.

Since March, the garden has produced hundreds of pounds of produce for COVID-impacted restaurants in Baltimore neighborhoods.
