Baltimore Orchard and Pies

Gwen Kokes served with Civic Works’s Baltimore Orchard Project under Episcopal Service Corps Maryland in 2015-2016. She planted fruit trees, taught others how to care for theirs, and connected with community volunteers. She is now Civic Works’s Volunteer Manager, coordinating the 3,000 volunteers and the 200 AmeriCorps Members that serve with Civic Works. As an ESCMD member, she learned the valuable lessons of teamwork, communication, and patience, all of which she uses everyday to help make Baltimore even more community driven. Many of our Gileads stay in Baltimore, and continue the work of change.
