Tyler Street Community Garden

Tyler Street Community Garden Tyler Street Garden is a neighborhood garden built on a former vacant city lot consisting of vegetable and flower beds located within University Heights.

The UHC, through a partnership with Grassroots Gardens has created a community garden at 73 Tyler Street. Before the garden, the parcel had sat vacant for many years after a house fire. The garden currently features eight raised beds, a handful of fruit trees, and a colorful assortment of perennial flower beds. Local institutions such as churches or businesses as well as residents can adopt and maintain a bed. There is also a tool chest with basic gardening tools available onsite. Contact us if you are interested in getting involved or would like to host an event at the garden.

Today we're citizen scientists at the Tyler Street Community Garden
We're collecting soil and plant samples for the Geosciences Department at UMass Amherst to test if portable X-Ray Fluorescence instruments can quickly and accurately estimate availability of inorganic nutrients and toxic metals in garden soils.

Now that's a tool we can get behind! πŸ€“

From Vacancy to Community Vitality

The University Heights Collaborative through a partnership with Grassroots Gardens WNY created the community garden at 73 Tyler Street in 2013 after a house fire many years before left the land in deplorable condition. But, with tremendous sweat equity and effort from local residents, neighbors, and community organizations the garden has transformed into a flourishing urban paradise for urban gardeners, and native plant and insect populations featuring ten raised beds, three sour cherry trees, and a colorful assortment of perennial and shade flower beds.

In true to being a community garden, local institutions, churches, businesses and as well as residents can adopt and maintain a bed in the garden for free all in exchange for their commitment to upkeep and maintenance. As a raised bed adopter, you are entitled to the produce you grow in that garden and ask visitors to the garden to please refrain from picking from those beds. However, the on-site tool shed provides our gardeners and visitors the opportunity to get their hands dirty to weed or harvest from our community raised bed which is open to the public to enjoy.

We’re always looking for new gardeners and neighbors to host events and attend workshops so contact us if you are interested in getting involved!

Garden and Grow,

The Volunteers of the Tyler Street Community Garden
