Urban farms are good for Buffalo. Not only do they beautify neighborhoods but they also provide a great harvest for communities. Urban farms are considered “equal” for neighbors to plant and receive prizes. Caring for urban farms teaches important life skills, as well as the importance of eating well. These farms are places where people raise chickens, cook, market, and socialize. The farms have become important anchors in the community to meet the needs of the growing population.

At FEEDMORE WNY, major gardeners will be available to answer questions, and the UB Food Laboratory will discuss the implications of public policy on urban agriculture.

To show how insignificant these farms are, the preparation of the first Urban Farm Day b Gardens Buffalo Niagara.
