Hey mamas.  Spring has sprung and here’s to hoping we see more flowers than showers.  We have some interesting meet-ups this month.  First we’ll be doing a pole dancing class for mamas who wanna get fit with a twist.  Next, we’ll be heading outdoors to work on phase 2 of a vacant lot project I began last summer called Mom’s Corner.  I’m hoping to complete my project in 3 phases (God willing) so that we can have family meet-ups, cookouts and some outdoor empowerment workshops.  Finally, we’ll end the month with a coupon class with one of our fellow mamas who is well known in the city for being able to rack up the discounts on just about everything.  I’m excited about this month and hope all of you mamas will be out n’ about with me.  If you can’t make it to all the meet-ups just come to one, we’d love to have you.

It’s Mom’s Night Out!  We’ll be taking a pole dancing class at Fitness with a Twist on Saturday, April 9 @ 6 pm.  The class is $23.75 and RSVP is required.  If you’re interested in attending either send me an email at pghbrownmamas@gmail.com or post in our private facebook group.


Phase 2 is upon us.  Our project at Perrysville Ave. & Perryview Ave. needs some sprucing up.   Winter has left leaves and debris and our flower beds need new plants. Lend a helping hand on Sunday, April 17th between 1-5 pm.  Eventually, the space will be used for Brown Mama meet-ups of all sorts.  Husbands and older kids are welcomed.  Let’s make this happen.  See ya in the lot.

I stumbled on your page while doing some research on black farmers in Pittsburgh and though this isn’t exactly what I was looking for I’m glad I found it!! I would have loved to join your gardening day due to my completion of horticulture technology at bidwell I’m extending my help wherever for the just the hands on experience and networking through the city. If you have another gardening day or know of any please let me know. P.s I’ve also liked your page on fb so I’ll keep a look out for any postings. Thank you in advance.
