The 2018 Class of OSI-Baltimore Community Fellows; Baltimore Foodparks


Open Society Institute’s Baltimore field office works to improve city life by offering start-up funding to a group of social entrepreneurs--a new cohort of community fellows every year for the past twenty years. Executive Director Diana Morris and Community Fellowships and Initiatives Director Pamela King describe the impact of this network of fellows.

Then, we kick off our profiles of the 2018 crop of OSI community fellows with Eric Fishel, whose project, "Baltimore Foodparks," aims to help neighborhoods connect with nature by developing greenspace and tracking local birds.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
