Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo Awarded $22,000

BUFFALO, NY – A local non-profit organization is getting a financial boost from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation this week as Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo is set to receive $22,000 in grants.

Announced Monday, March 14th, the competitive grants were awarded to 57 nonprofit land trusts across New York State.  

“By working together and connecting the work of land trusts in communities from Buffalo to Long Island, we are helping New York be a national leader in conserving and protecting working farms and private lands that support local jobs and businesses,” State Senator Mark Grisanti (R-Buffalo), Chair of the Senate Environmental Conservation Committee, said. “This partnership benefits Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo and is a model for the EPF, and I look forward to its continued success.” 

A first-time recipient of NYS Conservation Partnership Program grant funds, the organization is planning on using the money to complete an organizational strategic planning and assessment process that will allow the organization to explore new opportunities to secure long-term, permanent protection of vacant land for community gardens in the City of Buffalo.
