Think Spring! @ Urban Roots

Throughout the course of the winter, Urban Roots Garden Center offers a delightful array of gardening opportunities. These seminars and workshops are prefect for those who want to gather some additional garden knowhow, so that they can be prepared to dig in when the snow melts.

By taking the time to learn more about the art of gardening during the cold months, the rewards will be even greater come spring. And some of the classes can be put to good use right away by getting the planting season off to a good start indoors!

All of these winter/spring events are free.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
