About the Project
Mitra and Chitra are a father and son duo that moved to the Mt. Oliver Borough in 2012 by way of Nepal and Bhutan. Because of the high population of Bhutanese refugees living in the Mt. Oliver area, they want to create a community space that pays homage to their homeland. In partnership with Grow Pittsburgh and the Mt. Oliver Borough, Chitra and Mitra Gurung will be building out a community space within the new Mt. Oliver Community Garden. The space will have a place for sitting and eating food from the garden, as well as a play area for children, including the English and Nepali translation of vegetation that will be growing in the garden.
