Grow Pittsburgh

Established in 2005 by three urban farmers, Grow Pittsburgh is an urban agriculture nonprofit focused on teaching people how to grow food and promoting the benefits that gardens bring to neighborhoods. The nonprofit runs educational programs at Pittsburgh schools, a summer intern program for teens, and an adult intern and apprentice program.  Crops are grown at the nonprofit’s two farm sites by Grow Pittsburgh farm managers, apprentices, interns, and volunteers, and sold at various places, including two independent farm stands which serve the fixed or low-income populations living around the sites by selling at below market rates and accepting EBT/SNAP and similar payments.  In 2010, the organization launched a community gardening program that provides technical, educational and material assistance to communities interested in establishing community gardens and helps connect gardeners across the region to share resources and lessons learned.
