The Pittsburgh Garden Experiment! Pages


We're new! Join our group and help us grow!



PGE is a loosely organized group of urban farmers in Pittsburgh. We've turned vacant lots, backyards, and other open areas into organic natural habitats and food producing plants. Our vision is of a system of organic urban food production that is healthy, provides a substantial part of our diet, and is scalable to any neighborhood.

PGE holds classes, workshops, meetups and dinners to celebrate and embrace urban food production in Pittsburgh. Education and Community Connections are our number one priorities.

Goals of PGE:
Localize Economy
Provide a Healthy Source of Food
Local Seed Collection
Increase Natural Habitat
Build food into our neighborhoods

What we do:
1. Network with urban farmers through free educational and social events.
2. Survey Urban Food Potential
3. Make a lot of Mistakes
4. Start with more resources and better ideas each year

How We Do It:
Initiate Contact
Communicate
Plan Ahead
Get Dirty
Learn from Mistakes
Adapt
Repeat

The Pittsburgh Garden Experiment is sponsored by Steel City Soils, LLC.
