Enright Community Garden

Enright Garden is now in its 9th season!



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.

Keep an eye on the garden's Facebook page and the neighborhood Twitter account for more details and updates!
