This past weekend, the Pittsburgh contingent of Justseeds (Mary "Mack" Tremonte, Bec Young, and myself) hosted Justseeds' 2009 planning retreat at the convent in Braddock, PA with the generous help of the folks at Transformazium and Mayor John Fetterman. Much was accomplished, including the above obligatory silly group portrait - this one in front of the Edgar Thomson Steel Works, which roared without pause across the street from where we met, ate, and slept. It was an invigorating experience, despite the mental toll of three days of meetings!
