Protection Nonprofit Garfield Community Garden Purchase ensures protection for agricultural use

Garfield Kinkide Road Garden was acquired by TRive, a privately owned developer from East Tribe Development, Inc. and Penn ion Enterprises. The move calls for urban green space to be permanently protected for agriculture.

A.D. Founded in 2017, TRALI is a joint venture between Pittsburgh and Allegheny Land Development.

“We are investing in the protection of community gardens in the city,” said Allison Fearon, director of land security community conservation. According to the program, this is our second community garden and the third project.

The community garden was purchased for two packages each valued at $ 18,000. One was donated to Allegheny Land Trust and the other was purchased at a discount.

A.D. Established in 2012, Kinkaid Street is home to gardens of vegetables, flowers and annual plants. Volunteer gardener Kwame Kinsel says the purchase of trillions will protect the land.

We have strengthened our place to be useful and sustainable for the community. We can’t buy with a developer, we can’t change, you know, so it was a wonderful feeling.

Kinsel also says the purchase will allow the garden to make more long-term investments. Through PWSA, they plan to make fruit trees, picnic tables, art, solar panels, a platform and the city’s water system accessible. Water for Community Garden Program.

Locals take care of shared gardens or start their own plans on Kindaid Street. It also has resources to address food insecurity: food produced on common land is open to all, and there is a warehouse with packaged goods.

In the early days when gardeners are more active, they want to look their best. They plan to promote more community events, including gardening, fertilizer, cooking and plant identification classes. They believe TRALI’s purchase will facilitate this.

Kensel wants Kinkaid Road Garden to be part of the community.

Traditionally, he said, these gardens play a role in creating green spaces and outdoor spaces for the homeless.
