There is housing available in the row homes at Borland Green! Borland Green is a cohousing community located in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty and centered around Borland Garden. Borland Garden is an urban green space with a native food forest, small fruit orchard, rain garden with a cistern that collects rain from our roofs, annual vegetable beds, herb gardens, and more. We are an intergenerational open and affirming community for all people. We have worked for many years to build a space of mutual flourishing for one another and the neighborhood beyond the set of houses surrounding the garden.
There have been some beautiful experiences, such as the Bonfire Reading & Music Series and Art in the Garden’s transformative effects on children and adults—ourselves included. We shape many of our garden activities around empowering neighborhood children to connect with the earth. We have varied interests as individuals, and as a collective we believe in caring for ourselves, each other, and the earth. The garden and surrounding homes are close to grocery stores, a farmers’ market, library, coffee shops, and a gym-and pool-equipped community center. Bus lines and bike paths run to the universities, hospitals, and downtown.
