Civic Works

Civic Works has worked with Glenn for the past four years on projects focused on the redevelopment of abandoned lands in East Baltimore and environmental training. At the Amazing Port Street project, Glenn worked with Civic Works’ Vacant Lot Team to turn an area formerly occupied by abandoned rowhouses into a beautiful community garden with a perennial nursery and a sacred labyrinth. He has also played a vital role in the B’more Green program, an EPA-funded Brownfields Job Training Pilot that is operated by Civic Works. As an Advisory Board member, Glenn gave Civic Works’ staff guidance about how to make the curriculum more community-friendly and taught a class on community advocacy. Glenn also participated as a student in the first B’more Green training session last spring. During the course he served as a role model for the other trainees and encouraged them to think about how they could apply their new environmental skills to improve their own communities.
