East Side Momentum

East Side Momentum

altSaturday, August 12, 2017

Buffalo’s East Side is an area of distinct and evolving neighborhoods. On this tour you’ll visit six sites that reveal firsthand the changing cultural presence of this diverse section of the city.

Enjoy the Buddhist community center garden developed by newly integrated immigrants. View the family-operated Wilson Street Farm and the Pelion Community Garden at City Honors School. Both serve their local neighborhoods but in distinctly different ways. Touch base with the Farmer Pirates who foster urban farming and learn how the community-based rooftop garden above the historic Broadway market has resolved numerous challenges. Meet the None Like You/We Care community group, started by a group of far-seeing women, that functions to tie neighbors together and to provide educational opportunities.

Unrelated as the various neighborhoods of our city’s East Side are, they continually exhibit enthusiasm and resourcefulness
