Knotweed is a cooperatively operated urban farm, run by four
Pittsburgh farmers. Emily, Meg, Nick, and Paula Jean have 23 years
combined farming experience.

This year, we are delighted to be growing on land at Wild Red's
Gardens, in Stanton Heights. The land was managed organically and
sustainably for the past 13 years as Mildred's Daughters Urban Farm,
by Barbara Kline and Randa Shannon.

The Shannon Family remains on the land and is building collaborative
relationships with local artists and musicians and activists as well
as with our farming group.
