Ever since the Garden Walk took root in Buffalo, this city has become synonymous with gardening. During the spring, summer and fall, Buffalonians are busy planting flowers and trees, so as to keep up with the green momentum that we we see throughout our neighborhoods. Fortunately, that same gardening momentum also continues throughout the winter, when many of our gardeners take the time to learn about gardening practices that they might be too busy to seek out during the growing season.
Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo has teamed up with Urban Roots Community Garden Center Cooperative to develop a workshop series that is intended to keep green thumbs busy starting in January. From the role of the sun, to attracting birds, insects and butterflies, to seed starting and organic pest management, building raised gardens and the art of composting, the workshops are as diverse as the people who attend them.
