The transformation of the vacant lots that have become the Larimer Community Garden began with a collaboration of the Larimer Green Team, GTECH Strategies, The Penn State Extension, and the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh. The Larimer Community Garden is designed to provide the neighborhood with quality open space in which it can meet to form and reaffirm connections.
The first step to creating this dynamic public space was a sunflower field. The sunflowers were used for biofuel and the garden is now home to 40 beds.
