The Pittsburgh Urban Gardening Project

The Pittsburgh Urban Gardening Project is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating people in ways to live healthy, sustainable lives.  We plant, grow and harvest fruits and vegetables around Pittsburgh with the goal of turning city streets into healthy eats.


A special thanks goes out to Mimi Wilps for being the first donor to the Pittsburgh Urban Gardening Project.  Her generosity provided us a garden plot, $6 in seeds, 48 tomato starts and a mini greenhouse to start the seedlings in.  This $6 in seeds yielded 83 basil plants, 19 cucumber plants and approximately 50 lettuce plants.  On top of that, we only used half of the seeds!!!  Proof that growing your own produce is cheap....
