Join us on The Public Good! Our guests on this week's installment of The Public Good are Jeanette Koncikowski, Executive Director of Grassroots Gardens, and Gail Wells, founder of Buffalo Freedom Gardens. “Using Public Land for Public Benefit” is one of PPG’s Community Agenda priorities for the year, led by Grassroots Gardens with their mission to share knowledge, power, and resources to grow healthy food, heal systemic harm, and strengthen neighborhood connections through community gardens. Jeanette and Gail discuss how the City of Buffalo could work with residents, community groups, and nonprofit agencies to establish a comprehensive plan that permanently reserves 50% of publicly owned vacant land for equitable, sustainable uses.
