LCCC Helps With Vacant Lots

On Thursday, July 17th, Josie Bryant, Parish Social Minister for St. James Church and founder of Stone Soup and Serenity Community Gardens in Wilkinsburg, received something she’s been waiting for for over five years.

In cooperation with St. James Church and Home Depot, Landmarks Community Capital Corporation (LCCC) orchestrated the purchase of a riding lawnmower to help Josie and her volunteers tackle the difficult task of maintaining many of the vacant lots on Franklin Ave in Wilkinsburg, in addition to maintaining the community gardens she and so many have worked hard to get started. Josie’s grassroots initiatives are a vital component in fostering Wilkinsburg’s revitalization.
