Discover the Polish Hill Wilds


Are you familiar with the wilds of Polish Hill?  At 6:45pm on Thursday July 16, lifelong Polish Hill resident (and PHCA President) Terry Doloughty will lead a Permaculture working group walk.  The group will meet at West Penn Recreation Center (on Paulowna near 30th street, right above the park).

This walk, a program of the Pittsburgh Garden Experiment,  is free and open to the public.  The PGE says:

“Join us in exploring the wild edibles and natural resources of Polish Hill. We will meet inside and then head out to discover the untold treasures of Frank Curto Park (itself rather untold). Along the way we will discuss site analysis, food forests, and some hearty Polish Hill history.

This is the second meeting of what we are calling a Permaculture Working Group. Permaculture is an approach to designing human settlements and perennial agricultural systems that mimic the relationships found in natural ecologies.  The group is open-ended and provides a forum for exploring permaculture design through sharing knowledge and first-hand experience.”
