Parks not Pipes- The first phase of the Panther Hollow Restoration plan is finally under construction! This first phase includes infiltration trenches, berms, and landscape conversions from lawn to meadow in order to slow down and infiltrate water before it reaches Panther Hollow Lake. The later phases include rain gardens and a green street. Andropogon has been working with Meliora Design and the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy since 2011 on the restoration of Panther Hollow.

This is Northern Bayberry, Myrica pensylvanica. The entire plant is very waxy, including its berries. Colonial Americans would boil the berries and make candles from the wax that floated to the surface of the water. This wax means the berries are packed with energy, making them perfect sustenance for migrating birds.

Hops, known for its function in brewing beer, comes from Humulus lupulus, common hop. The cones, seen here, are used to add taste and to help preserve the beer. India Pale Ales, IPAs, were originally brewed with a large amount of hops to help preserve them on the long trip to India. Fields of cultivated hops are referred to as hopfields, hop gardens or hop yards. [x]

Anyone who tells you that you need a yard to get your garden on is a LIAR.

old wooden board (I used a piece of painted wood I found by a torn down home)
mason jars
pipe clamps
triangle ring hangers
stainless hanging wire
picture hanger
chalkboard paint & chalk
brush
hammer, nails and screwdriver
herbs

Space mason jars evenly on wooden board, and mark placement with a pencil in order to design and measure around.
Tape off rectangles on board, and paint with chalkboard paint as pictured above. This way, you can switch out herbs and change their labels accordingly.
Paint pipe clamps gold, and secure to wooden board by hammering a nail through the small holes in the pipe clamp.
On back of board, nail in ring hangers and tie on hanging wire.
Plant herbs in mason jars.
Place mason jars into pipe clamps and tighten with a screwdriver.
Nail picture hanger into the wall, and hang your herb display!
