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 of Pittsburgh Permaculture) 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 within this highly collaborative project were Artist / Project Manager / Garden Designer.
For photos and details of all three gardens from 2012 – 2013, please view the digital book documentation below:
