Gearing Up for Another Season of Night Owl Bakers

Metro21 is excited to announce that the Night Owl Bakers(NOB) program is officially gearing up for another season of baking! The group will be meeting Saturdays from 9:00am-4:30pm at Propel’s Community Wellness Center in the Northside of Pittsburgh. 

Founded by two Carnegie Mellon professors, Kristin Hughes and Mary-Lou Arscott, Latham Street Commons has involved hundreds of community residents in the design and learning process. Over the past two years, we have invested time experimenting with potential ways of growing food.

They are looking for volunteers with expertise in a variety of fields, including: architecture, product and communication design, kitchen and financial literacy, business, and storytelling! Volunteers will mentor a growing group of young entrepreneurs and creative thinkers. 

If you are interested, NOB will be happy with any amount of time you would be willing to volunteer, but they are specifically looking for individuals who have 2 hour segments available on Saturdays. By inviting you to be a part of the Night Owl Bakers experience, the team is continuing to expand the thread of community engagement and mentorship that has become a vital part of our program. 

Please email nightowlbakers@gmail.com if you would like to volunteer with NOB. To learn more about this project, read the full article on the project: https://www.cmu.edu/metro21/projects/latham-street-commons.html
