Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper

With grant funding from the New York Power Authority Greenway Ecological Fund, Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper is partnering with the North Tonawanda Botanical Garden Organization and other local entities to transform one acre of Botanical Garden shoreline into a natural and self-sustaining transition between the land and water. The project is part of Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper's Living Shoreline Program.

A public open-house will be held Thursday February 13th, 2020 6:30-7:30 pm in North Tonawanda City Hall, 216 Payne Avenue to introduce the design concept. Informational presentation boards and members of the consultant design team from Wendel, Inc. will be on hand to discuss objectives for the site. For more information, visit the project web page:

When is a good time to start seeds for annuals? I want to add a bunch of zinnias, cosmos, Lantana - etc. I've always bought them and have never done them from seed - but I want to give it a go.
hello, since your group are great gardeners, is it possible to start seedings in a milk containers in this WNY weather? Please forgive me for asking on this fb page.
Can someone identify this? I picked it up as the saddest plant ever and it just exploded. Boy does it attract honey bees and carpenter bees.
I have no idea where else to ask this - but has anyone tried experimenting with growing clover as a living mulch for their flowerbeds - especially those designed to attract pollinators?
Hello there, do you need small bird houses?
