Garden Pull Dates

The fall 2016 community flower garden pull schedule is listed below.  All events begin at 9 a.m. unless otherwise noted. Garden pulls are a wonderful opportunity to get outside as the weather turns cool and prepare the gardens for winter months. If you, your co-workers, classmates or your family are interested in helping to prepare the gardens for the winter in your neighborhood, please contact Lynn McGuire-Olzak, Volunteer Coordinator at (412) 586-2324 or by email at lolzak@paconserve.org.

A map of our work including WPC flower gardens throughout the region can be found here.
