Braddock Farms is located on Braddock Avenue and is part of GrowPittsburgh.org. It seems to get bigger each time I see it, and indeed that is the case. When I last visited I was told that the produce would be sold at the farmer’s market, which the sign suggests.
In an area that, without the concerted effort of those involved, might become a food desert, healthy, locally grown food has got to be a boost to the community. Grow Pittsburgh offers youth internships and high school students are given training in sustainable agricultural production.
This print will be shown with three others in the upcoming show, Eternal Photographs, at Montgomery College in Rockville, MD from 10 November through 19 December 2014.
