There are so many ways to volunteer your time with us or learn more about what we do. Check out the options below. We hope to see you soon!
For all opportunities with Grow Pittsburgh, be sure to dress for the weather in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, wear closed-toe shoes, and bring water and sun protection.
Volunteer or Tour a Grow Pittsburgh Production Site
Choose between our largest production site at Braddock Farms, see what’s possible on an urban city lot at Shiloh Farm, or come and see our greenhouse production at the historic Frick Pittsburgh Greenhouse.
We also host regular, open volunteer nights/potlucks at our two farm sites.
Braddock: Weekly on Tuesdays, 5:30 – 7 pm
Shiloh: Monthly on third Thursday, 6 – 7:30 pm
