Baltimore Man Gifts Land To Nonprofit Working To Connect Families Of Color With City’s Outdoor Spaces

March 10, 2021
When Greg Cantori’s mother died a few years ago, she left him a gift. “I had this inheritance from my mom, and I was able to use that money to purchase two and a half acres of land in Baltimore that had never been developed,” he said. Cantori wanted to use the land to help the neighborhood “in many, many more ways than just putting a house in there.” Then Atiya Wells bought the land next door, which she used to create the nonprofit Backyard Basecamp, which works to connect families of color with the city’s outdoor spaces. Wells’ group hosts nature walks and farming classes, among other programs.
