Chatham University event will highlight local produce

April 30, 2013 by  

Celebrating food and agriculture in the Pittsburgh area, the 3rd annual ‘Food in our Neighborhood’ event will get the new month off to a good start this weekend.

It features exhibits from local gardening and agricultural organizations, a seed swap and samples, demonstrations such as how to build a worm compost box, and a variety of workshops. Some of the topics covered in the sessions include info on how to start a business from home and looking into ‘alternative’ options in food. It should be very informative for those who want to begin growing their own food or who wish to find more local producers from whom to buy their groceries.

Local organizations will no doubt be handing out informative literature to educate the public about what they do and how they help the community. It goes without saying that many will probably be working with Pittsburgh brochure printers to design and create brochures or booklets to be distributed. A brochure is helpful in that it can get the point across quickly and succinctly, while also being inexpensive to produce. A brochure can often get passed on to other people after the original recipient is done with it as well.

Food in our Neighborhood will take place at Chatham University’s Shadyside Campus on May 4 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, and there is no charge to attend. Those who are interested in participating or require more information can contact Gretchen Sneegas at 317-332-4221.
