"From Blight to Beauty"

From Blight to Beauty is an exhibition of photographs and narratives created by the 18 women farmers, gardeners, food activists, and activists in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, who took part in The Female Farmer Photovoice Project during the spring of 2019. As part of a participatory action research project, the group created a collection of images that shed light on the people, places, struggles, and celebrations that showcase their experiences with urban agriculture. The images document experiences of community, collaboration, isolation, healing, and love, as well as the beauty of "growing food and growing minds" in many of Pittsburgh's neighborhoods.
