Love Your Block Volunteer Day

On Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. we need a bit of your elbow grease to help beautify the hillside at the corner of Barry & Mission Streets. Through the City of Pittsburgh, the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association was awarded a Love Your Block grant to beautify the site. Join neighbors by helping to prepare the ground, plant flowering shrubs and perennials and spread mulch. We also hope to level a spot near the top of the hillside and build/place a sitting bench. Join us and bring a friend or three. Lunch is provided!
