Hey Pittsburgh! Don’t be afraid of a little rain……spring is here and all our little blooming friends need a sweet drink. Speaking of which, have you planned your garden for this year? Here are some of our favorite resources for dreaming of sweet tomatoes, bright wildflowers and local resources:
We love these seed companies:
The Urban Gardener on the North Side is a bright spot on Brighton Road:
Our very own Maria Graziani’s Healcrest Farm:
Healcrest Urban Community Farm is an established urban farm in Garfield now in its 4th year of production. The total land, which lies between Atlantic and Pacific Avenues, with the entrance at Hillcrest Street in Garfield Heights, equals 1.7 acres. With 4 established mixed vegetable/herb/fruit gardens, small, young orchard, community fire circle, rainwater collection systems and a pending greenhouse, Healcrest Farm is well on its way to being the strongest single-community local food and green resource in Pittsburgh.
Gardener’s can stay in great shape for lots of kneeling, squatting and tending with yoga in Pittsburgh. Try gentle stretches that protect joints and strengthen your back, legs and arms. Yoga Matrika offers over 30-classes a week and we keep our studio comfortable with air conditioning in the summer.
Hope to see you soon at Yoga Matrika and I’m looking forward to seeing everything blooming in your yards very soon!
