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.

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!

And you’re in luck….

Because Pgh Farm & Forest just announced that they’ll be operating normal storefront hours starting this Thursday April 13th! Their hours will be Thursday-Saturday 12-6pm. Special plant requests can be made by contacting the owner on Facebook or her website.

What they’ll be selling

Besides the workshops, Farm & Forest will be selling fresh cut flowers, terrariums, house plants, candles and other home goods. They’ve also made available a Summer Flower Subscription where you can have fresh flowers delivered weekly!

So get down to Pgh Farm & Forest and help out a small business! Any place away from home that can make you feel at home is doing something right.
