Sandi Lando Welch, Founder & Head Gardener

For my 72nd birthday this year, I gave myself a present – Sunny’s* Community Garden, a non-profit program that transforms unused urban lots into gathering places for gardeners of all ages to learn about and experience the benefits and rewards of growing healthy food. It was just an empty lot, but on April 22, 2021, volunteers transformed it into a vibrant, urban space with a Growing Area complete with raised beds and a Gathering Area of picnic tables. 

First harvest will be this summer/fall!

* My grandchildren call me Sunny.

THE BACK STORY

Sunny’s Commuinity Garden started with Sandi’s idea of using her many years’ experience as a Master Gardener to transform a vacant piece of land into a safe, accessible garden in the heart of Pittsburgh. 

We thank the Rev. Glenn G. Grayson, CEO of The Center That CARES for the use of his land. Sunny’s will yield its first crops Summer/Fall of 2021.
