Farmer Profile: Kimberly W. Raikes, Farm Manager
Kimberly’s farming passion began with a family farm in Fort Mitchell, Virginia. From there, she went on to be the first intern for the oldest Black owned farm, The Greener Garden Urban Farm, and then the Black Church Food Security Network Garden Coordinator. She has completed the Weed Warrior and Tree Keeper courses at Baltimore Recreation and Parks, as well as the Future Harvest Beginner Farmer Phase I Training and a Master Gardener certification from University of Maryland Extension. In 2017, she made many achievements for the Down South Afro-ecology Encounter in Durham, North Carolina, eventually leading to her position as the Farm Manager at Whitelock!
Farmer Profile: Wykeem Franklin, Program Manager
Developing a love for the outdoors at a young age while working with The New York Restoration Project to revamp his neighborhood creek, Wykeem started volunteering at Whitelock in 2015 when first moving to Reservoir Hill, Baltimore. He remained involved and furthered his role at the farm by co-leading our YouthWorks summer program in 2017 and 2018, as well as starting Saturday community fitness gatherings to advance community engagement and promote wellness in Reservoir Hill.
