Community Flower Gardens

Community Garden Stewards

After its 130 community gardens are planted each spring, the Conservancy relies on a dedicated group of volunteers, called garden stewards, to give regular attention and care to these gardens. Stewards work during the spring and summer months to keep the gardens healthy and blooming into the fall.

WPC is currently seeking volunteer stewards to “adopt” a garden to regularly prune, water, weed and remove litter and debris. Individuals, community groups or businesses interested in volunteering to steward a WPC community garden should contact Lynn McGuire-Olzak at 412-586-2324 or lolzak@paconserve.org.
