Braddock Youth Project

We are doing everything that we can do to keep this thing rolling forward. As has been the case for the last three summers, I am working with the BYP kids interested in food growing, cooking and food systems in general. And once again I have found inspiration in the work that is happening with Grow Pittsburgh and Marshall Hart as well as the entire BYP team.

Recently, the farm team took me through the work thy they've been doing this summer. We then harvested corn, tomatoes, green tomatoes, herbs and peppers which we took back to my house for a cooking class. With the help of Jake Seltman and a group of motivated young people we prepared fresh corn grits using all ingredients harvested in Braddock by Braddock residents.
