In 2008 with the help of East Liberty Development, Inc., Grow Pittsburgh, Kentucky Avenue School, Whole Foods Market, various partners, and a crew of enthusiastic neighbors Enright Community Garden was established in East Liberty. The site of the garden is a vacant lot that was acquired by East Liberty Development Inc. through tax delinquent property sales. Prior to its conversion as a garden, the lot was an eyesore and, frankly, a blight on the neighborhood.
With community participation we grow a variety of vegetables, herbs, fruits, and flowers using organic and sustainable methods for educational programs, food donation, and personal use.
In 2017, we were awarded a Love Your [Resilient] Block grant from the City of Pittsburgh to help upgrade the garden and develop new plans for how to engage the community in developing a sustainable vision for the garden.
Please join us for our upcoming
2017 Garden Kick-off Clean-up and Planning Session!
Come out on Sunday, April 9 from 10 AM - 2 PM 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!
Rain Date: Sunday, April 23 from 10 AM - 2 PM.
