BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A sale on Buffalo's west side goes one step beyond the typical farmer's market.
The group "Massachusetts Avenue Project" held a 'Growing Green Youth Farm Stand Seedling Sale' on Massachusetts Avenue Saturday. Visitors could buy locally grown organic seedlings, which when properly cared for will sprout into herbs and vegetables.
Youth Education Director Rebekah Williams said, "The proceeds go back to our non-profit to the Massachusetts Avenue Project, and we employ 30 youth in the summertime, 15 throughout the school year, and beyond urban agriculture and sustainable farming, they learn about social justice, education, they learn about business development, they go out in the community and do audits of the needs in the community, and determine what their community's needs are and learn how to give back."
The group will be back at the same spot the next two Saturdays with vegetable seeds.
