Did you know our production sites yield over 10,000 pounds of produce annually? Most of that produce is sold at farm stands to community residents or to local restaurants. We are always excited to get people involved in the task of building a stronger and more sustainable community.

For all jobs with Grow Pittsburgh, be sure to dress for the weather in clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, and wear closed-toe shoes. Bring water and sun protection.
