In the summer of 2011, over 150 volunteers from PULSE and the Mennonite Convention in Pittsburgh worked to convert three abandoned lots (5414 Kincaid Street) in the Garfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh into garden space. The hope was that property, located right behind the PULSE Graham house, would serve as an opportunity for local residents to “cultivate community” by growing their own food. Lots were cleared and eight beds were created in the space with the long-term hope of developing a community garden.
In late 2012, PULSE began collaborating with the Garfield Community Action Team (GCAT ) on developing the community garden project with local residents.
