  • Get Involved


    The first nine beds at SCG provide fresh produce donated to community food pantries operated by Union Baptist Church of Swissvale and Living Spirit Ministry.


    Swissvale Community Garden is 100% volunteer operated. Any time you can contribute to building, digging, watering, planting, harvesting, or promoting is incredibly appreciated. Use the contact form below to inquire about upcoming volunteer opportunities.

    Swssvale Community Garden envisions a garden, not only as a place to primarily grow food but also as something of a public park. It is intended that various social activities can take place in proximity to the growing of food, which will further cement in the minds of residents that sustainable agriculture is interwoven into the fabric of everyday life.
