Interested in local food? Gardening? Why not combine the two to start a community garden next year?
Grow Pittsburgh, in partnership with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, is assisting communities to start community food gardens.
From GP's web site:
"The garden program lasts for two years, with the goal of garden self-sufficiency by the end of the second growing season. To be eligible, garden groups must have a partnering non-profit, and a suitable site with lead levels below 400 PPM on public or non-profit-owned land in the City of Pittsburgh. "
There's also an information session this Sat., Aug. 25, from 10 to 11 a.m. at Grow Pittsburgh,
6587 Hamilton Ave #2W, Pittsburgh 15206. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
