Town Hall for Bailey-Dartmouth Community Garden

Community Gardens are good for the heart, and the soul. They increase property values. They help purify the air. They combat heat deserts. They’re good for water retention. They are also key habitats for pollinators.

Every neighborhood should have a vibrant community garden.

That is the reason that University District Council Member Rasheed N.C. Wyatt will be hosting a community Town Hall, to gather community input in regards to the Bailey-Dartmouth Community Garden. The garden was converted from a vacant lot into a community garden in 2006, established by residents as a tribute to Shaquanna Terice Jackson, a three year old who perished in a fire on the site on March 15, 1998. The effort to establish the garden was led by the community, in tandem with the University at Buffalo’s School of Architecture and Planning.  

Now, the garden is at a crossroad. A committee is seeking feedback per the direction of the garden’s future. The City of Buffalo Department of Public Works and Vendura Landscape Architect, PLLC are inviting the University District community to help come up with a plan for the garden moving forward.
