PPC's 'From Slavery to Freedom' Garden Tour

Presented by Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy at Frick Environmental Center

Honor Juneteenth with a tour of the From Slavery to Freedom Garden at the Frick Environmental Center. Coming from Africa to the United States, the enslaved were unfamiliar with their new environment, yet found resources and amassed knowledge of the new land. This proved essential for survival and was a key element of the journey from slavery to freedom. Take a tour of the From Slavery To Freedom Garden – an outdoor extension of the Heinz History Center’s From Slavery to Freedom exhibit and a space to explore the connection between freedom seekers and the land.

Please note that in the event of rain, the tour will be moved to June 12, 2022.
