As interest in food, farming and urban agriculture grows across the United States, it is increasingly important that the next generation of growers and advocates gain more exposure to working in the fields, with communities and also behind the desk, to support local food access.
As a nonprofit organization, Grow Pittsburgh is able to support potential new growers with a seasonal experience on their production sites. They are also able to offer opportunities on the organizational side, so individuals can get a better sense of what they do behind the scenes.
