The Sixth Branch
The 6th Branch (T6B) operates three community farms in Baltimore City. At our farms, we regularly fight bermuda grass in perennial boxed beds and at the perimeters of our in-ground beds. In 2023, we developed a research project to study three passive and chemical-free ways of weed management for the benefit of the community farms T6B operates and other similar farms.
