Western Pennsylvania Urban Farm Managers Intensive

December 6, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm


Connect with other urban farm managers and tackle topics ranging from grant writing to groundhogs. 

Managing an urban production space comes with a unique set of challenges. Join us at Grow Pittsburgh’s Garden Dreams for a full-day of learning, sharing, and growing community with other urban farm managers across Allegheny County and the wider Western Pennsylvania region.

We’ll kick off the day with networking, goal-setting (and plenty of coffee). Morning and afternoon presentations will explore topics like irrigation systems, pest management, farmer co-ops, business basics, grant writing, and more.

We’ll wrap up with open discussion, reflection, and more time for networking and community building. 

Featured speakers:

  • Hannah Mosca, Greenhouse and Farm Manager at Grow Pittsburgh’s Garden Dreams 
  • Russell Thorsen, Pasa Farmer Outreach Specialist
  • Dan Dalton, Pasa Associate Director of Farmer Training & Development

Got a burning question or an issue you’d like us to cover? Let us know! Submit any and all discussion questions to dan@pasafarming.org by December 1 for consideration in this year’s program.

Please note: This meeting is designed for individuals responsible for management-level activities (such as crop planning, irrigation, weed and pest management, harvest, post-harvest food safety, or farm business) at production-oriented urban sites in Western Pennsylvania.
