Greenhouse and Gardens at the Frick Art and Historical Center

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

In a collaboration between Grow Pittsburgh and the Frick Art and Historical Center, the greenhouse and gardens on the Frick property provide food for the cafe on site. The cafe is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm, and the greenhouse is open to the public during these same hours. Produce from the site also supplies Bona Terra restaurant in Sharpsburg and Dozen Bake Shop in Lawrenceville.

The greenhouse and gardens are managed sustainably, but are not certified organic. Heirloom tomato, pepper, eggplant, swiss chard, and kale seedlings are offered yearly in the spring/early summer, on site. Seedlings can also be found at The Urban Gardener in the North Side and Whole Foods in East Liberty, as well as at May Market (May 16-17) in Mellon Park.

Touring the greenhouse and gardens is free and open to the public. Look for fresh flower bouquets and forced bulbs, sold seasonally in the gift shop.

Grow Pittsburgh is an urban farming organization with the mission to model, teach, and facillitate sustainable urban agriculture. It is supported by the Penn State Extension of Allegheny County.
