Do you grow food in the Pittsburgh area? Stand up and be counted!

Do you participate in a community garden or community farm?   Are you growing food in your backyard?  Do you keep chickens or bees?  If your answer is yes to any of these questions, then Grow Pittsburgh is interested in hearing from you.

Grow Pittsburgh is compiling a list of current and prospective urban farmers, community farmers, community gardeners, and backyard homesteaders.  They need your feedback to set priorities as they continue to work to promote growing food in our neighborhoods.  Please help by filling out this survey for any project you are currently a part of, and by sharing the link with anyone else you know who is growing food in our region.  Not all the questions will apply to everyone who grows food in the city but Grow Pittsburgh would like to hear from as many people as possible.

Here’s the survey:

It should take 15-20 minutes to complete. The information collected will be processed by Grow Pittsburgh staff and Penn State/New York University researchers.  Only aggregated, anonymous information will be shared outside the Grow Pittsburgh offices.

Please direct any questions to Marisa Manheim, or (412) 362-4769 ext.103. Paper surveys are also available on request.
