How to Design & Build a Community Garden

March 12 @ 7:30 pm


Learn how to plan out a multipurpose community garden space to function how you need it to, and learn to build it so that it’ll last. We’ll touch on many topics, from groundhog fencing and raised bed supplies to methods for designing accessible garden gathering space for young kids and older adults. We’ll also tackle a simple approach to garden infrastructure project planning.

This workshop is an opportunity to hear from Grow Pittsburgh’s Community Projects team, share your own experiences, connect with other community gardeners, and start to troubleshoot design/ build plans for any community garden you’re involved in. You’re welcome to attend whether you’re dreaming about a future community garden or entering another year as a seasoned community gardener–or anywhere in between.

Grow Pittsburgh’s “How to Start a Community Garden” resources were originally created for new garden groups, but are now meant for both new and experienced community gardeners. Folks in all stages of community garden work have found them to be helpful.
