Saxifrage quote photoFor those of you who aren’t familiar, the Saxifrage School is a not-for-profit higher education laboratory working to lower costs, rebuild neighborhoods, and reconcile disciplines. They are based in the Garfield/East Liberty/Larimer corridor and have been offering a host of lectures and courses around the city over the last two years. Dedicated to creating community partnerships their current curriculum is focused on offering low-cost 12-week courses based in the theory and practice of organic agriculture, carpentry, web development, and graphic design. As they grow their programs, they are working towards becoming a full-fledged 500-person college that extends the liberal arts to include technical crafts.Interested in learning web development? The Saxifrage School is excited to announce a new partnership with BikePGH! For a very limited time Saxifrage will offer a special discount of $75 off to the first three BikePGH members who enroll in their upcoming “Intro to Full-Stack Web Development” course. Full details on this course can be found here.

In their work to create a more community-oriented, sustainable model in higher education, it has become clear to the school’s admin team how much of a connection there is between their project and the bicycle advocacy community in Pittsburgh. They are excited to be offering this limited time discount to BikePGH members as part of a new effort to make BikePGH membership even more valuable.
