Welcome to Grow Pittsburgh’s tool-lending library and materials depot!

We stock a wide array of gardening tools and materials including tillers, string trimmers, wheelbarrows, compost, and much much more.

We want to make urban food gardening more accessible. 

The Garden Resource Center is open to any individual or group within Allegheny County. We wholeheartedly support backyard gardeners, community gardeners, and locally-owned small businesses who are working to produce food for themselves or others. We believe that “access to locally-grown, chemical-free fruits and vegetables is a right, not a privilege.”
