October 2010

View our fall pull-out dates!

It’s time for WPC to put our community gardens to bed for the winter. Volunteers make it possible for us to remove old flowers and prepare the soil for a new planting season in 2011. Below, you’ll find a list of days when you can help with a garden pull-out in your community. All events begin at 9 a.m. unless otherwise noted. You can use Google maps to locate our gardens throughout the region here.

If you are interested in becoming a garden steward or supporting this year's garden season as a volunteer or donor, contact Lynn McGuire-Olzak, Volunteer Coordinator at (412) 586-2324.
