Our mission & Vision
"Eating is an agricultural act."
- Wendell Berry
To create and sustain a new, regional asset in south Pittsburgh’s Hilltop community, that is committed to growing food, growing farmers and growing a community. Hilltop Urban Farm will benefit its neighbors by being a catalyst for community pride and reinvestment.
With the tools, education and funding needed to successfully operate, Hilltop Urban Farm will provide entrepreneurial opportunities for farmers; teach children about farming; and offer easy access to healthy, locally-grown food for the community. Hilltop Urban Farm will serve as a national model for leveraging urban agriculture planning and programming to achieve a broad spectrum of community development goals.
