Wilkinsburg Community Engagement Gardens



The Wilkinsburg Community Engagement Gardens project planned three different types of gardens based on the design principles of permaculture – and fully implemented two of these gardens – on two urban sites.

The Orchard Forest Garden (designed by Juliette Jones) was planted at the main lot, with the Community Grazing Garden (designed by me) planted at a sister lot, in Wilkinsburg Borough (adjacent to the City of Pittsburgh, PA).

My roles for the overall vision were Artist / Project Manager / Garden Designer.
