Happy Earth Day!

“Everyday is Earth Day!”

It’s a common saying among staff here at Grow Pittsburgh and while it’s certainly true that we should all do our part in our daily lives to sustain the environment that we live and grow food in, and address climate change, that doesn’t mean we can’t give a little extra love to our Mother Earth in celebration today and throughout this week.
