Guardian Storage Sponsors Four Pittsburgh Community Gardens
At Guardian Storage, we believe it is our responsibility to contribute to a cleaner environment. We invest in several green initiatives, including sponsoring four community gardens through the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy. These gardens are located in four separate areas of the Pittsburgh region and help bring beauty and color to the areas where they are located.
Our Western PA Conservancy Community Gardens can be found in:
We are so proud to sponsor Pittsburgh’s first ADA-accessible community garden! The garden features raised beds and wheelchair-accessible aisles to make the joy of gardening accessible to everyone.
Why community gardens?
We believe in green communities and giving back to those communities which we serve. These community gardens often start out as vacant lots or abandoned sites. With the help of sponsors and volunteers, they are turned into vibrant, colorful areas in their communities. These gardens provide urban areas for wildlife and pollinators such as bees and birds. Typically placed on busy roads, they serve to brighten the daily commute for thousands of people around Western PA.
