Doesn’t it break your heart to throw a wonderful plant on the compost pile just because you don’t have room for it in your garden?
MAP wants to create a beautiful fence line at their new farmhouse. They’re looking for perennial flowers, herbs and fruit plants.
All donated plants must be in a container.
“If they could be labelled, that would be excellent,” said Claire Collie, farm education coordinator at MAP. “If you’re not sure exactly what it is, just put whatever information you know. If you know it’s a lily, lily is enough.”
They have two drop-off times scheduled, and would like people to drop off plants only during those times. The staff isn’t always around, so if a plant is dropped off at other times, it might be missed.
The drop-off times are:
- Day 1: 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5 at the office at 271 Grant St., Buffalo
- Day 2: 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 7 at the farm at 389 Massachusetts Ave., Buffalo
