Walker Marsh, a Baltimore native, got his start in farming at Civic Works Real Food Farm as a production assistant and very quickly fell in love with farming. After being a production assistant he was able to become a off-site field manager at Real Food Farm's Aisquith Street lot. Once having gained more skills he felt the desire to start his own farm. Entering the City's 2014 Growing Green Design Competition he succeeded in being awarded $63,000 to start "Tha Flower Factory". Navigating the ins and outs of Baltimore City's permitting process took a full year, but now Tha Flower Factory is in its first growing season and will be blossoming soon!
