Monticello Street Hospitality House Creates a Community Garden
On May 16th several dedicated volunteers worked through the rain to create a community garden in Homewood. Neighbors and residents worked tirelessly to create this beautiful green space for all to enjoy.
Three cheers for these hardy volunteers!
Making an Impact!
"The project looked enormous when we first started and there were doubts expressed that we would complete it in time. [But] We did it, and the high-fives showed the feeling of accomplishment everyone was feeling."
- Christina Howell, Bloomfield Development Corporation
Getting Things Done!
"We have a new sense of community responsibility - where we are all accountable for creating a better Pittsburgh."
- Tera McIntosh, The Hazelwood Initiative
"This program helps tear down the barriers between what neighborhood groups may want to do and lets them actually accomplish it."
- Ben Soltesz, Spring Hill Civic League
Creating Community Involvement!
"With the volunteers, the transformation of the site would not occur without many hours and days of continued efforts. They arrived in numbers and helped transform the site quickly. The best part of the event day was using it to foster excitement for the future of Beechview and bringing people together.."
- Joe Wingenfeld, Beechivew Business Distric Revitalization Project
