Kimberly is an urban farmer, community outreach coordinator and produce-safety educator in Baltimore, Md. Her passion for farming originates from her family’s farm in Fort Mitchell, Virginia. Kimberly developed Whitelock Community Farm from Baltimore’s Adopt-A-Lot program in the Whitelock neighborhood. The 1-acre footprint provides fresh, healthy produce to residents and share knowledge and passion about farming, nutrition, and community health and wellness in a community that is typically removed from agriculture. Whitelock grows produce, herbs, native fruits and nuts, and it is currently retrofitting a greenhouse to include mushrooms.
She is a Conservation Steward with America’s Conservation Ag Movement and has hosted conservation learning events with other urban farmers, many of them affiliated with the non-profit organization Acres4Change, for which she is a board member.
