Alimay Thompson Kendrick sits in her dining room and recalls the first meeting of a neighborhood club she joined in 1959.

It was named For-Win-Ash and its aim was to keep these communities green, clean and beautiful. Most of Baltimore remained racially divided at that time, although public schools were integrating. Black professionals were moving into the three neighborhoods and adjacent areas, such as Callaway-Garrison, where she and her husband, physicist Webster Moyse Kendrick, had recently bought a home.

Stephanie Groth's passion for gardening stretches back more than 40 years, when she became a charter member of the Ferndale Garden Club. Yet it wasn't until she retired in 2000 that she had the time to indulge in her passion. When she moved into her home, the 1/5-acre yard consisted of grass and a couple of Burford holly bushes. To brighten it up, she planted some flowers around her mailbox. That modest beginning was the start of a complete yard makeover. Today a mulched path and stepping stones wind through a sloping backyard that features a waterfall and koi pond.
