Assemble unites artists, technologists, and makers with Pittsburghers of all demographics by providing a platform for experiential learning, opening creative processes, and building confidence through making. Assemble hosts classes, interactive gallery shows, and learning parties at their Penn Avenue space and elsewhere throughout Pittsburgh. Our Co-op is excited to host Assemble for an upcycling workshop where attendees will create one-of-a-kind pieces out of old, used, or discarded items.

Women’s (Cheese) Day
Caldwell Linker, East End Food Co-op
Gemini Children’s Theater

March 8th is International Women’s Day! People around the world will celebrate the social, economic, and political feats women have achieved over the past century. Our Co-op plans to extend the observance of this deserved day of recognition well into the week by exploring the contributions of female fromagères (cheese makers) to our store’s cheese selection. Caldwell Linker, our Co-op’s cheese buyer and resident cheese expert, will guide us through an exploration of cheeses developed, produced, or sold by women.

Every Drop Counts
StormWorks team members
Gemini Children’s Theater

Pittsburgh has struggled to address storm water management for years. StormWorks, a division of the Nine Mile Run Watershed Association, specializes in rain water mitigation strategies and wants to share their expertise with us. We will learn about the role rain gardens play in controlling runoff and will discuss examples of plants common to rain gardens in our region. The StormWorks team will also show examples of rain barrels and will help homeowners identify the best methods of water management for their property.

This event is FREE; just call 412-242-3598 to reserve your spot!

Wednesday, March 25th, 6:30 PM
Cold Weather Vegetables and Herbs
Bob Madden, Garden Dreams Urban Farm and Nursery
Carnegie Library of Homewood

Spring is officially here! It’s time to get out and garden. Bob Madden of Garden Dreams will arm you with all of the information you’ll need to start your garden with confidence—no prior experience required! It may be chilly out, but these colder spring months are a great time to grow hardy vegetable and herb varieties. This workshop will introduce methods of season extension to help you time your planting efforts to yield the largest and healthiest possible yield.

This event is FREE; just call 412-242-3598
