An amazing organization that does a great deal of work on a shoestring budget. I think that this group could use a better relationship with the city goverment, but all in all does an amazing job for what it does!

action and they have such a great reputation throughout the community it is amazing!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I am the board chair, so I guess I do run it!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that it is a real grassroots effort, with many different collaborators!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fantastic, and always helpful!

reclaim all the vacant parcels in Buffalo

Ways to make it better...

the city worked more closely with them

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, and lack of marketing material to get the word out.

Grassroots Gardens is a volunteer based not for profit that has been working to make the City of Buffalo a better place I've been a board member of Grassroots Gardens, Inc. since 1996 and truly believe in the positive aspects community gardens bring to our neighborhoods. Grassroots is an organization devoted to helping people create and sustain community gardens on vacant, city-owned lots in Buffalo. Not only do the gardens provide food, but it has been shown that these gardens have helped the city in taking over some of the 14,000 deserted lots in the City of Buffalo. As a Buffalo Police Officer I can attest to the increased feeling of safety in neighborhoods that have a community garden.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

more gardens.

Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo continues to promote the greatness of the entire Buffalo City by invigorating the 30 plus neighborhood gardens with thoughtful planning and guidance for all who wish to participate in beautifying Buffalo one garden at a time. Economics seem to be no barrier to the planting and sustaining the gardens throughout the city. Vegetables and flowers abound at planting time because of the tireless staff of Grassroots Gardens to buy and have donated the vast amounts of bulbs and flowers and ornamental plants. Neighborhood children and adults join hands and labor together to beautify their own little bit of Buffalo. This is a group that brings out the best in the neighborhood. For that we are all thankful.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the gardens all over the city: at street corners, in vacant lots that are now bountiful with flowers and or vegetables, at the apex of streets where one only weeds grew, and from the poorest to the richest neighborhoods have pulled together to work on the gardens.
