Thanks to you, Groundwork Buffalo had an amazing 2019!
This summer our Green Team was busy getting their hands dirty with neighborhood cleanups, outdoor beautification projects as well as tending to, harvesting and donating produce locally grown in the Fruit Belt. In addition, four of our Green Team members had the opportunity to visit Yellowstone National Park where they connected with youth from other Groundwork chapters and worked with park educators and scientists within the field for an experience of a lifetime!
With your support our Green Team has gained invaluable skills necessary to lead, engage and positively impact their community through environmental stewardship and with your continued support we hope to improve, expand and accelerate this impact for the year ahead.

The mission of Groundwork Buffalo is to build sustainable urban environments in Greater Buffalo by engaging and empowering families and communities, including youth, in re-generating and connecting with natural infrastructure and the built environment.
