Ashley Fersch tends to newly planted herbs at the Good-to-Grow Greenhouse in Lawrenceville on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013. Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania will use the 18-by-30-foot greenhouse for a classroom as clients will learn to cultivate and grow fresh produce and flowers year-round. Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania cut the ribbon Thursday on its latest job-training “classroom” — an 18-by-30-foot greenhouse that it hopes will also be a an asset to the Lawrenceville neighborhood. Funded by a $50,000 grant from Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, the Good-to-Grow Greenhouse sits on the westside of the Goodwill Workforce Development Center at 118 52nd Street. Goodwill clients will train at the greenhouse, learning to cultivate and grow fresh produce and flowers year-round. Produce will be used in the nearby Good-To-Go Café, and the flowers will be used for landscaping at the development center. Both produce and flowers will be sold at the Lawrenceville Farmer’s Market, which operates from May through October in Goodwill’s parking lot. Exterior construction of the Good-to-Grow Greenhouse has been completed, agency officials said. Work is now under way on the interior, including furnishings and materials such as raised beds, soil, tools, seeds, bulbs, plant starts, lighting and a landscaped pathway. It is scheduled to be in full operation by Dec. 1.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
