Charm City Land Trusts
Natalie Cohen is the Environmental Coordinator and Educator at Amazing Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in McElderry Park.  Amazing Grace is the primary steward of the Amazing Port Street Commons, a Community Land Trust, and the only true, open green space in the neighborhood.  As the Environmental Coordinator and Educator, she leads the programming in the Amazing Port Street Commons, coordinates volunteers and community garden workdays, and teaches an after school program focused in Environmental Education.  In addition to all her work at Amazing Grace, she also serves on the Board of Charm City Land Trusts as the Open Spaces Committee Chair.  Despite her brief time spent at Amazing Grace, she has built a dedicated team of community-based volunteers, created a comprehensive maintenance plan for the Commons, and is fostering future stewards of valuable greenspace in Baltimore City.  Natalie is apart of the Chesapeake Conservation Corps but will continue her work in the Amazing Port Street Commons after her fellowship is completed.
