The Tustin Street Community Garden, at 2021 Tustin St., provides local residents an opportunity to improve their health (while saving money) by growing a variety of their own vegetables. Ten raised beds were constructed (video) by Uptown Partners board members and residents in November, 2010 and planted the following spring. This garden is generously supported with expertise and resources, such as a community-built tool shed by Grow Pittsburgh, and many others.
The City’s Love Your (Resilient) Block program has provided funding for fencing, tools, plant material, picnic tables and more, while DPW reliably provides Uptown mulch and mowing in the immediate area.
