Community Garden Center Buyer’s Club

The Urban Roots Community Garden Center is putting together a Buyer’s Club that will allow people to order special plants, including organic heirloom tomatoes, perennials, annuals, herbs and vegetables, at a reduced rate, and pick them up at Utica and Brayton on a designated date this Spring. This is the first major project of the cooperative, and what we can accomplish before being legally incorporated.
The order forms and a “catalog” will be available at Diggin’ It! (801 Elmwood Avenue) for the month of March for those who don’t have Internet access or are not internet savvy. Orders are due March 27, and the plants will be available for pick up at the corner of Utica and Brayton Streets on June 3.
For further information please visit our website or call Diggin’ It! at 885-7884.

Megan Mills Hoffman, Alaskan-born and raised, arrived in Buffalo in 2003 thinking she'd stay for a few months, much like her other brief sojourns in Missoula, Montana; Oxford, Mississippi; Portland, Oregon; and Albany, New York. Then she discovered Wegman's cheese aisle and Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin House, the first of which reminded her of her mother's experience living outside Manchester, England and the second of her father's experience in construction in Alaska. While discovering Buffalo's others treasures, she worked with Buffalo Rising as it first expanded online, the Burchfield Penney Art Center's New Museum Project, Buffalo State College, Western New York Land Conservancy, Young Audiences, and The Gow School. She has served on the boards of the Allentown Association, Mandala School, Western New York Environmental Alliance, and Field and Fork Network. With a B.S. in Sociology and twenty plus years of experience working in community development and grassroots organizations, she has embraced, developed, launched, and established, to varying degrees of success, a variety of local social movements, all directed at changing the way we think about our education and learning. She lives in a small town south of Buffalo, much like the one she grew up in, with her Buffalo-born husband, daughter, and Bernese Mountain dog.
