Grassroots Gardens WNY is a determined group of activists who educate and lead committed neighborhood gardeners. We collaboratively cultivate and manage more than 300,000 square feet (and growing!) of green space in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Our work is rooted in the belief that a garden has the power to transform an urban neighborhood. Gardens deliver beauty and escape and produce healthy food in unexpected places that previously had little value. A garden creates a shared sense of purpose that empowers a community, creates environmental awareness and improves public health. .
Mission Statement: Grassroots Gardens WNY enables community-led efforts to revitalize the city and enhance quality of life through the creation and maintenance of community gardens that beautify blocks, grow healthy food and strengthen neighborhood spirit
We can't garden communities without you though! Grassroots Gardens WNY does not receive any fees from our gardens or gardeners. Over 25% of our annual budget comes from individual donors like you and the remainder from public and private charitable organizations.
In 2018, community donations supported: 2,438 vegetable and herb seedlings 461 seed packets 467 raised beds 191 cubic yards of soil, mulch & compost 97 educational workshops.
Please consider sowing a seed for 2019 below. Your donation is critical to our ability to provide the same level of material support to our gardens. Let's grow together!
