In Bloom // Octopus Garden

February 13, 2020

Howdy! I’m Lexi, Anthem’s Creative Director. We’ve been visiting different community gardens and farms around the city and interviewing the people who founded and maintain them. We call this series, ‘In Bloom.’

In this episode, we interviewed Kristin Hughes, founder of the Octopus Garden in Pittsburgh’s Friendship neighborhood. She explained the garden’s origin, the impact it has on the community today, and even where the famed octopus came from.

Watch the video here! If there’s a community farm or garden you’d like us to highlight, be sure to reach out to us. You can email leads to or contact us via Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn.
