Community Garden

The Penn Hills Community Garden is one of the most successful projects of the PHCDC.  Sprouting in 2010 with only 16 beds, the community garden grew to 104 beds in 2012 and continues to grow today.  

Located at 1162 Jefferson Road between McKenzie and Laurie Drives, the garden aims to bring fresh produce into the homes of our gardeners as well as donating produce each year to local food banks and senior centers. Most importantly, we are a welcoming space where Penn Hills neighbors can meet, grow and word together for a common goal.

Become a Gardener

A membership fee of $25 gets you one 4’ x 12’ raised bed in which to plant anything you like. You also have access to water, tools, some seeds and seedlings, picnic area, and the knowledge of many seasoned gardeners. No experience is necessary to join, and we encourage and support first-timers. All members are invited to participate in planning and organizing the garden, and workshops, parties, and events are scheduled throughout the season.

In addition to the PHCDC, some of our community partners include Grow PittsburghPenn Hills Lawn & GardenGreater Pittsburgh Community Food BankPenn Hills Senior Service Center, and local Cub Scout and Girl Scout troops. We gladly accept donations of gently used gardening tools, equipment, and landscaping materials, and we have many volunteer opportunities for groups and individuals who want to get involved.
