Getting their hands dirty: Steelers rookies spent Tuesday afternoon getting their hands dirty and it was all for a good cause.
The players spent time at the Sheridan Avenue Orchard and Garden, a fruit and vegetable producing garden in Pittsburgh’s East Liberty neighborhood.
The Sheridan Avenue Orchard and Garden was developed in 2012, turning an abandoned lot into an urban garden by Repair the World Pittsburgh.
It has since grown from a vacant lot to have more than 20 fruit trees and 18 garden beds, where neighbors can get free produce like tomatoes and peppers, as well as items being donated to the local food pantry.
