Review for Grassroots Gardens Of Buffalo Inc, Buffalo, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

more gardens.

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

Hire an executive director.

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

watching the transformation of neighborhoods.

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

from all walks of life.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Green the entire city.

Ways to make it better...

City government would work with us.

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

1. Lack of funding 2. City government 3. Volunteers 4. Staff

One thing I'd also say is that...

Grassroots Gardens is the BEST!
