Hope House


Imagine Community Gardens is looking for volunteers to help plant trees, shrubs and perennials at the “Peace Garden” at Hope House, a homeless shelter for woman and children, 586 Genesee St., Buffalo (one block from the Jefferson Street exit of the Kensington Expressway/Route 33).

What is now a lawn area is being turned into a butterfly garden with nature paths and a seating area. On the work day, volunteers will also lay wood chips on the path and freshen up the children’s playground area with playground-quality mulch. The area already has a community garden.

The work will be done from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, June 30. You can just show up that day and help for as long as you can.

Please park on Genesee Street. Take work gloves if you have them.

Volunteers from local landscaping companies will lead the project and provide equipment such as wheelbarrows and shovels as well as the plants.
