Garden of Etna

The Etna Community Garden was established in 2011 through a partnership with the Glenshaw Presbyterian Church and Calvert Memorial Presbyterian Church with grant funding received from the Allegheny County Health Department.

 

The garden is located at 23 Locust Street in Etna and is known as an allotment garden where people rent or adopt individual beds to grow crops. Residents of Etna and volunteers from neighboring communities can join the garden. Volunteers participate in work days, organized events, and social outings.

Produce grown at the garden includes tomatoes, squash, kale, peppers, swiss chard, red beets, fresh herbs and other items. These food items are available to volunteers and also donated to the Bread of Life Food Pantry. Harvested produce is delivered to the pantry on Tuesdays and made available to shoppers on the pantry's client shopping days which are held the first three Wednesdays of each month.
