Baker Creative® takes an active interest and role in the community where we live and work. Our focus is on creating beauty, and sometimes the best way to make the world more beautiful is by lending a helping hand.
Brad Baker Helps Grass Roots Take Root
Brad Baker founded Grass Roots to engage children and adults in gardening and horticulture by beautifying the Old York Road corridor. Find the Grass Roots website here. The group is developing plans for long-term, sustainable landscapes that will enhance the community. Recent projects include:
Arts in the Park – through an outreach table at this major community event, 50 individuals or families signed up to help plant, maintain or financially support the Route 611 planters in 2010. Support of $50 to $125 per year can keep a barrel planter blooming! Want to get involved? Contact Brad Baker.
Diggin’ It Day – A community-wide day of planting and learning about gardening along Old York Road.
Planting & Pastries – a day for 5th through 7th graders to plant daffodils along the stone wall of the Mandel Campus in Melrose Park – and enjoy a pastry and cider snack.
Seasonal Interest – the group rotated plantings, with spring Pansies, summer Red Dragon Wing Begonias and fall Mums.
Day Camp Gardening
Baker Creative stepped in to double the size of the Ramah Day Camp vegetable gardens this summer with a new design, fencing and delivery of free local Township compost.
Other 2010 Projects
Baker Creative has offered to contribute its landscape design, installation and maintenance services for the much anticipated CreekSide Co-op when it opens in Elkins Park.
We will build new vegetable, herb and flower gardens in three locations, totaling ½-acres, to help stock local food pantries and to serve as educational and experiential gardens for local school children.
