Get Involved

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.

FREE Milkweed Seedlings

Join the effort across North America to bring back the Monarchs!

The Monarch and Milkweed Project, supported by the PHCDC, will be giving away free milkweed seedlings at the Penn Hills Community Garden located at 1162 Jefferson Rd on Sunday, June 4 from 1-3 pm.

A total of 22 have helped us plant and grow 1000 milkweed seedlings in peat pots. As always, we are growing 3 types of native perennial milkweed, one for every type of garden. 

Butterfly Milkweed: 1-3' high, bright orange flowers, grows best in full sun with good drainage. Does not transplant well so leave it undisturbed once established.

 

Swamp Milkweed: 3-4' high, pink flowers, grows best in full to part sun in wet or average garden soils. An unattractive name for a beautiful plant!

 

Common Milkweed: 3-4' high, pink flowers and large seed pods, grows best in full sun with good drainage. It will spread by rhizomes so plant itwhere it has room to spread.
