We're going to hit the ground running and combing our usual pre-season general meeting with a workday.

Have you noticed how some plots have shrunk while others have gotten bigger? Since the garden started in 2012, plots have gradually changed shape and/or size
which is to be expected. We'd like to get the plots back to their original size, where possible, to ensure that everyone has equal space to plant.

Please join us on April 23th (rain/snow date May 7) to have a general meeting followed by re-establishing the pathways and plotlines. Our plan is to measure things out as they originally were and place flags in the four corners of each plot. Then, you can adjust your plot and regain any space you have lost. We also may do some general maintenance and mulching of pathways.

We'd really like to see everyone there!! 


If you are interested in being part of a group order from Grow Pgh, please email and we will send you a .pdf of the "catalog." Everything is $3.75 wholesale (priced individually) except garden flowers & greens. Garden flowers & greens are in four packs for $5.75 wholesale. 

Orders are due by March 28 so we'd like to have our order wrapped up by March 26 to then send to Grow Pgh.

Gardeners are expected to begin prepping/cleaning their plots for the upcoming growing season by the end of April. By Mother’s Day, gardeners must have planted seeds, seedlings, or transplants in their plots or the licenses of any returning gardeners will be revoked.

Garden plots should be cared for at least once a week. Failure to abide by the garden rules and regulations will result in the forfeiture of your plot.  If a garden plot is not in compliance with the regulations, notification will be sent by email and a response is required within five (5) days or your plot will be considered abandoned and your license will be revoked. A follow-up inspection will be performed one (1) week after the email notice. If the plot is still not in compliance, your license will be revoked and your plot will be re-assigned to the next household on the waiting list. All fees and produce will be forfeited.  

(Please note:  If you are sick or temporarily disabled, on an extended vacation, or otherwise temporarily unable to care for your plot, please email so that we can work with you to avoid your license being revoked.)
