Come join us to learn the basics of heat pumps, and ask your questions!

In 2019 New York passed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), which includes a timeline to reduce and eliminate our use of fossil fuels. Heat pumps are an energy efficient, all electric system that can provide heating and cooling.

If you currently heat with electricity, propane or oil, heat pumps can save you money! Come learn about these systems if you are interested in installing them, or curious what options are out there to get your household off of fossil fuels.

There will be plenty of time for questions!

Take a glimpse at some of what PUSH Blue has been up to on the West Side! We’ve been busy restoring old rain gardens and garden beds by wedding out non-natives and planting native perennials (except the hostas!), and have much more in store before Buffalo enters winter! Stay tuned y’all!

What a day! Thank you to this beloved community for showing up on Friday for PUSH Buffalo's 2nd Annual Solidarity Day! Though the day started out windy and rainy, by the time we got to Mass Ave. Park, the sun came out, the wind died down, and we had ourselves a party! From African drumming and dance, to family arts and crafts, to delicious soul food, and fresh garden produce, the PUSH community showed up and showed out. We can't wait for more safe gatherings in the coming months – it was powerful to see you all, and share this space together! Photos by Unai Reglero

Everyday is Earth Day! We are celebrating all week long. As we prepare for warmer weather and spend more time outside, opportunities to engage in outdoor activities abound. Although many outdoor festivals have been cancelled or postponed, most state parks are keeping their grounds open during daylight hours seven days a week. If nature preservation and conservation spark your interest, there are many ways to have an immediate impact. In fact, our friends at Buffalo Niagara Waterkeepers have an invitation for you.

The rain in Spain: how an ancient Arabic technique saves Alicante from floods

We love this article about cities in Spain "remembering our way forward," showing that holistic nature-based practices are a better and cheaper solution to water management needs and climate change, in addition to other benefits to people and the environment like pollinators and green space.

“The need for sustainable management has forced us to recover ancestral practices,” says Jorge Olcina, professor of analytical geography at the University of Alicante. “You could say that these rainwater storage facilities in Alicante and Barcelona are the new aljibes of the 21st century.”

To protect itself from destructive flooding, the city has built a park designed to store and recycle rainwater

Cooperation Buffalo and PUSH Buffalo announce 12-week Cooperative Academy

Thinking about starting a business in line with your values? Check out the Co op Academy!

"We know that the extractive dig-burn-dump economy leaves the planet sickened and people exploited. We also know that the people closest to problems have the best solutions. Worker-owned cooperatives put workers in control of their workplaces and return our economy to be in harmony with community needs and collective solutions,” explained Andrew Delmonte, Director of Cooperative Development for PUSH Buffalo and Cooperation Buffalo.

There's a new movement afoot that intends to help roll out worker-owned cooperative businesses in Buffalo. This city was once home to a lot more cooperative businesses, and hopefully this initiative will see those numbers rebound. Co-op models of business add great economic diversity to cities. Take

Five Points Bakery

Buffalo’s first, code approved grass parking lot at Five Points Bakery is one year old today.
It can absorb 3” of rainfall keeping water out of our storm sewers.
It reduces heat island effect, provides habitat for insects, helps mitigate global warming by converting carbon dioxide into oxygen, looks nicer for our neighbors, helps to filter the water to keep our oceans cleaner. its cheaper than concrete, stronger than asphalt, and so much more.
We are so happy and thankful to be able to keep pioneering in Buffalo.
More to come!
