Ribbon-cutting ceremony for Natrona's Unification Wall set for Thursday
A ribbon-cutting and acknowledgement ceremony for the “Unification Wall” at the community garden in Harrison's Natrona neighborhood will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday.
Work on the 230-foot wall began this summer and wrapped up in October . It is made of wire baskets filled with multi-colored bricks, rocks and cement boards cut into garden shapes and decorated with ceramic tiles.
The event will be at the garden, which is at the corner of Federal and Greenwich streets.
Cake and a light lunch will be served.
Several people and organizations helped build the wall, which was paid for through a $30,000 donation from ATI Allegheny Ludlum.
Those involved included the Natrona Comes Together Association, which owns and manages the garden, Habitat for Humanity Allegheny Valley, local churches, high school and college students and Squirrel Hill-based mosaic artist Stevo Sadvary.
