The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has 130 community gardens in and around Western PA, they are planted and care for by volunteers.
Our gardens range in size from small beds to large and dramatic plantings. We plant at schools, in neighborhoods, along busy highways, in business districts, at bridges and other landmarks or gateways in our region. We plant gardens in 20 counties
Each garden has a trained Garden Steward who tends the garden once it is planted and keeps it looking beautiful throughout the growing season. Gardens are planted on public land. All projects are partnerships among local community groups, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and the local municipality. We also welcome volunteers throughout the summer to help care for the gardens and provide extra care through weeding and other maintenance.
