The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy has 130 community gardens in and around Western Pa, they are all planted and cared 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 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.

We are always looking for new Garden Stewards to help tend gardens during the growing season. Most Stewards visit their gardens once a week for watering and weeding. Some larger gardens have groups that tend them as part of their organizational activities.
