Pittsburgh is home to amazing individuals who started urban farms and community gardens in black communities that are suffering from decades of food apartheid. You have the opportunity to join forces with Farm to Table Buy Local in by contributing to their fundraising campaign.. Your dollars will support urban farm infrastructure projects such as solar power, irrigation, shade structures, washing stations, seeds, compost, and so much more. Additionally, many staff members of these urban farms and gardens are working for free on land they don’t own.
They need help to:
Acquire land / compensate staff / purchase equipment through co-operatives / capture food dollars that are spent by people living in the neighborhoods by working with WIC, SNAP, and PASS programs.
