2018 Pittsburgh Urban Farm Tour

The 2018 Pittsburgh Urban Farm Tour is Saturday, September 8th from 10 am to 5 pm. This self-guided tour includes small commercial farms, community gardens, and apiaries in several Pittsburgh neighborhoods including the East End, Garfield, South Side, and North Shore. Participants can choose their own course and bike or drive to each destination. Select locations will have refreshments, items for sale, and offer demonstrations.

Organized by the East End Food Co-op (EEFC), Pittsburgh Food Policy Council (PFPC), and Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA), the tour’s purpose is to promote urban agriculture as a viable means for food production, build connections between consumers and farmers, and support the future of farming.

Urban farms have a significant impact on the food system, local economy, and urban environment. To ensure the farmers who manage these plots have access to resources and capital they need to be successful, proceeds from the Farm Tour will provide an honorarium for each participating farm and fund a new Urban Growers Scholarship.

Admission is $15/person. Kids age 12 and under are free. Purchase tickets here
