Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo, Inc.
April 23, 2009

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.
