PENN STATE EXTENSION IN ALLEGHENY COUNTY
PITTSBURGH FOOD POLICY COUNCIL
PITTSBURGH GARDEN EXPERIMENT
Sustainable Agriculture Fellow
The growing season is wrapping up, so we are moving into teaching and planning fun events and the work to be done in the off-season. This month for Penn State Cooperative Extension I did some work on the blog, but mostly prepared my lesson plans for our fall offering of Exploring the Small Farm Dream. Some progress is being made with the Food Policy Council, and we have a consultant to help us, pro bono, with organizational development and structure. This will take place in early November. For the Pittsburgh Garden Experiment our benefit concert, The Harvest After Party, went into full swing and I solicited sponsorships and donations from area businesses and organizations that are involved in the urban agriculture scene in Pittsburgh. I have also been recording measurements at our two seed bomb test plots. Fall has been great so far and is poised to get even better!
