The Green Committee (aka the PHCA Green Team) is always looking for more volunteers. The committee will have it’s first 2015 meeting at the PHCA office on January 27 at 6:30 p.m. At the meeting, we’ll be discussing goals for this year, scheduling cleanups, and more. (There will probably be snacks, too.) Anyone interested in being involved in green projects this year is encouraged to attend. Please RSVP by calling us at 412.681.1950 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

While we’re on the topic of green stuff, Grow Pittsburgh is again offering a great class for those who are thinking about getting into gardening this year.
A Garden Primer is a 3-part educational series offered in February and March. The class covers all the basics, including which tools beginner gardeners will need, what and where to plant and when to harvest.
The February series is on Tuesdays: February 3, 10 and 17. The March series is on Thursdays: March 5, 12 and 19. Both options are from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and are held at the East Liberty Presbyterian Church on 116 S. Highland Avenue. The course is $50 for Grow Pittsburgh members or $60 for the general public. Free childcare and a limited number of scholarships are available. For more information, email Jake or call 412-362-4769.
