About

The first Swissvale Edible Garden Tour is a free event set for Saturday, July 13th, from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm in 15 gardens throughout the Borough of Swissvale, and immediately followed by a celebratory cookout at the Swissvale Community Garden (7301 Denniston Avenue, Swissvale PA 15218) at 5pm. 

Offering a peek into some of the area’s most unique private gardens, the tour is an opportunity for Swissvalians and regional garden enthusiasts to come together, get inspired, and learn something new.

More Info

Through this FREE, community-wide event, SCAC hopes to showcase Swissvale as a great place to garden, visit, and live. We are seeking to promote the real and tangible benefits of gardening; gardening beautifies and connects community, promotes physical and mental wellbeing, and has far-reaching ecological benefits. We hope to build confidence in newer gardeners and inspire young people to get their hands dirty and get growing.

Keep an eye on the facebook event for updates on sponsors and activities as they develop!
