About Us
Pittsburgh & Braddock, PA | Member Since 2010

Grow Pittsburgh is a nonprofit organization (founded by 3 farmers) with the mission to demonstrate, teach, and promote responsible urban food production. They grow food on over an acre of urban production sites. Grow Pittsburgh also supports community gardens throughout Allegheny County and several Edible Schoolyards within the city. They sell the majority of their urban-farmed produce at reduced rates through farm stands in low-income areas. They joined PCFA in 2012, to assist with sales and distribution of the remainder of their produce. As a side benefit of PCFA membership, Grow Pittsburgh interns and apprentices have enjoyed visiting and learning from a variety of rural PCFA member farmers.

Practices
In 2006, The Frick Pittsburgh approached Grow Pittsburgh, offering the use of their beautiful, Victorian Frick Greenhouse. They began the partnership in 2007, renovating the greenhouse beds for food production.

Every year, Grow Pittsburgh use organic growing practices to produce vegetable, herb, and flower seedlings at the Frick greenhouse. They sell these seedlings to the public from late April through mid-June, during the hours The Frick is open. The Frick grounds are free and open to the public, and visitors are welcome to tour the greenhouse year-round. Produce from the Frick greenhouse is sold through multiple outlets including Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance!
