About the Rosalinda Sauro Siriannni Garden Staffed almost entirely by volunteers, the Rosalinda Sauro Sirianni Garden is a community-based garden that grows thousands of pounds of organic, healthful produce annually for North Hills Community Outreach’s two food pantries, which serve 1,500 local families. Since its first growing season in 2011, the garden has expanded to include a 23-tree fruit orchard, a children’s garden, rain gardens, a large composting area, and a high-tunnel for growing cold-weather vegetables, and provides educational opportunities for community members. The garden is located at 119 Davis Avenue in Bellevue. For more information on the garden or volunteering, please contact Rosie at or 412-307-0069 ext 3311
