The 60 members of Living Classrooms Foundation’s Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students (BUGS) After- School Program have been growing, cooking, and creating over the course of the fall and winter in preparation for the 20th Annual BUGS Farmers Market. During the event, 2nd through 5th graders from Baltimore City’s East Side will showcase what they have learned in the areas of gardening, creative arts, cooking, creative movement, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), including serving as the cashiers, receipt writers, sales associates, and stockers of their own business. This one-day, kid-run event offers hundreds of organically grown heirloom vegetable, flower and herb seedlings, student-made artwork, and homemade ice cream. Throughout the course of the event, visitors will enjoy live demonstrations, samples and music. The Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students (BUGS) Program of Living Classrooms Foundation works with children from under-served Baltimore City communities throughout the year with an after-school program as well as a summer program. The program's primary goal is to empower and inspire our children to develop academically, creatively, and socially. Many of our students reside in low-income neighborhoods and have little access to green space and few extra-curricular activities available to them. The program engages youth in learning while providing them with a safe and healthy alternative to the streets.
