Besides being the cutest place we’ve ever seen, Pittsburgh Farm & Forest has a lot to offer. Located in the heart of Bloomfield, this garden oasis is the perfect place to unwind with your succulent friends.
When I first stumbled upon it, I had just walked in out of the bustle of Pittsburgh traffic on a miserable rainy day. As soon as I took my first step inside the cozy corner store I was immediately calm and all my worries faded away. Soft music was playing, a lavender scent from a nearby diffuser misted in the back ground, and rain tapped on the glass windows as I peered deeper inside.
A group of women were chatting with glasses of wine as they picked their favorite containers for their cacti and moss to have a home.
The owners host workshops often for their guests to come in and have a night of good old fashioned planting fun with their friends.
The couple behind Farm & Forest
They are Meg and Josiah Leisher. Josiah’s background is in horticulture and Meg has always had an affinity for all things home and garden. They sit on a 30 acre forested lot outside of Pittsburgh with their three children.
It’s so beautiful and peaceful out there, and we wanted to find a way to incorporate more of that into our everyday lives.
It all began by starting a flower farm in the middle of the forest, and that very day Farm & Forest was born.
Workshops & Events
Farm & Forest has several events coming up including a BYOC (Bring your own container) Spring Break Workshop on Thursday April 13th for only $15! Just register online before the event and they’ll provide the stuff that goes inside!
If you’re already thinking about Mother’s Day, Farm & Forest is hosting a Fairy Garden Workshop for the holiday on May 13th. It’s the perfect mother-daughter bonding time, I wish I’d brought my own!
