Grow Pittsburgh believes that everyone in our region should have the opportunity to grow and eat local, healthy, affordable, and culturally appropriate food. Collaborating with neighborhoods to grow food and teach sustainability creates healthy communities.

Since 2010, we have worked with communities to start 27 gardens in Allegheny County through our City Growers and Allegheny Grows programs.

Last year we worked with 417 community gardeners to create 4,510 square feet of growing space. With members support we were able to make improvements to the Garden Resource Center, a garden tool lending library and resource depot that serves over 350 individual and community gardeners.

Membership supports these programs and gives communities the resources and support they need to grow. Together we can grow communities!
