This year, we have been awarded a Love Your [Resilient] Block grant from the City of Pittsburgh to help us upgrade the garden, and to plan for a sustainable future. As you may remember, Whole Foods is no longer a sponsor for our garden, which means that we will be relying solely on volunteer management and labor to support it. However, we have a great team in place, which includes our neighbors, the Kentucky Avenue School, and Repair the World. In the fall, over 50 people turned out on a chilly but sunny Sunday to put the garden to bed for the year.
We are kicking off our 2017 season with a Garden Clean-Up and Planning Session on Sunday, April 9 from 10 AM to 2 PM.
Come out and help us clean, build, and plan for a new season at Enright Community Garden!
Together with our partners at the Kentucky Avenue School and Repair the World, we are launching a new season. With a Love Your [Resilient] Block grant from the City of Pittsburgh, we will be repairing and remodeling in the garden to create a more sustainable model of a truly communal garden that is open to all our community members.
Projects that are in the works for this year:
- New raised beds
- A communal approach to gardening
- A community bulletin board and lending library
- Repairs to rain barrels and other infrastructure
- More organization and communication! Become part of the planning team and help us to develop programs to host in the garden!
- More fun!
Keep an eye on the garden's Facebook page and the neighborhood Twitter account for more details and updates!
