2020 Winter Gardening Seminars & Meetups

Every winter, Urban Roots hosts an event series where gardeners come together to discuss and plan strategies for the upcoming gardening season. Guests to the gatherings are invited to “ask questions, share successes and failures, bring your ideas and thoughts, while expanding your sense of gardening community.”

Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean that we can’t be strategizing for spring plantings. These informal gatherings are open to gardeners of all abilities – simply show up, grab a cup of coffee, grab a seat, and learn some interesting tidbits about gardening in the land of gardens, Buffalo NY.

Novice to expert, everyone is welcomed to discuss the many facets of gardening. We’ll put on the coffee, you bring the conversation.” – Urban Roots
