Good afternoon,

Thank you for asking! The best resource is our website here: http://extension.umd.edu/baltimore-city
On the right is our event calendar, which is where we advertise Extension events in Baltimore across program areas, from urban farming to gardening to nutrition to 4-H to personal finance. You can also follow us on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/baltimorecityume/

But if you let me know what topics you're particularly interested in, I can help you stay updated on those topics in particular. For example, I organize trainings for urban farmer entrepreneurs. I keep a running list of upcoming Extension events across the state that might be of interest to urban farmers here: http://extension.umd.edu/baltimore-city/urban-agriculture/upcoming-events-0

And I publish a monthly e-newsletter that will bring upcoming events straight to your inbox here: http://us14.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=ad82ed621b8b9a021412b8166&id=1ee9e020e4

Are you particularly interested in farming, gardening, 4-H youth development, health and nutrition, or personal finance?

Best regards,

I'm interested in farming, gardening, and personal finance. Thank you for taking the time to respond and for being so thorough in your response.

Good afternoon,

The Master Gardeners share information on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/250842898653188/?source_id=1814024372246670
There are a LOT of Master Gardeners in Baltimore, coordinated by my colleague Erin Mellenthin.
This weekend they have a bus or bike tour of gardens in Baltimore:

For gardening, the Home Garden Information Center Newsletter may interest you: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/subscribe-hgic-enewsletter

My colleague Michael Elonge teaches the personal finance program: http://extension.umd.edu/baltimore-city/fcs-financial-education
Usually he teaches at the invitation of other groups, like public housing, schools, or prisons.

Best regards,
