WPC’s Community Gardens and Greenspace Program Wraps Up an Active Planting Season

Between the first flowers blossoming in the spring and the final set of trees planted in late fall, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy’s Community Gardens and Greenspace program transforms our region. We not only plant and maintain 140 community gardens in 20 counties, but also are committed to greening each Pittsburgh Public school and planting 20,000 trees by 2012 with TreeVitalize Pittsburgh. This slideshow highlights the efforts that went into making the 2010 season one of our most successful to date.

Thank you to a record 12,000 volunteers who made a difference this year!
