After visiting with folks from Garfield Community Farm on Monday up in Mercer County, I decided it was a shame I hadn't visited them on site in Garfield sooner. So, this evening I remedied that. From Wilkinsburg, they are just a few neighborhoods over so I popped over and John, Cornelius and crew showed me around their lovely garden lots. The farm hosts a farm stand, runs a CSA, and supplies both the community of Garfield and Salt of the Earth restaurant with abundant produce. Neat. Check out their website and facebook site here.

They know what's up at Garfield.

Rotting wood with dirt on top = eventual rich composty growing beds.
