Several community flower gardens in Pittsburgh are in need of a volunteer garden steward. Each community garden requires a steward to weed, water and prune the garden during the growing season. Stewards are needed at community gardens in Larimer, North Side, Hill District, Moon Township and Squirrel Hill. To learn more about becoming a garden steward, please contact Lynn McGuire-Olzak at 412-586-2324 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

You can help care for these natural areas by joining our monthly land stewardship workdays hosted at sites throughout the region. Typical volunteer activities include removing invasive plants, clearing and repairing hiking trails, and marking property boundaries. View a full list of stewardship workdays and register online.
