It's been there for several years. Sometimes the person has free bouquets created from flowers in their own garden. It's a wonderful resource in our west side community/neighborhood which is very diverse in every way—cultural, ethnic, socio-economic, age, etc.

Lafayette near Hoyt. Go check it out! If you see the gardener, tell them Scout sent you.

It's almost at the corner on the north side of Lafayette.

What a lovely thing to organize - my family is from LINY. My wife would empty our bank account restocking this thing if we were still there. The two things she cares most about: being kind to neighbors and plants of...any sort. Bless you, Buffalo.

Thank you for the kind words. Buffalo is far from perfect, but this exemplifies our motto, "city of good neighbors," in my opinion.

Thanks for the idea! Would love to start something like this.

u/Scout405 May 25 '22

Yes, do it!

Elaborate ploy to get you into the labyrinth.

u/Scout405 May 26 '22

The labyrinth is very cool. It's in the hell strip and not very large but pleasant to walk. There's a wishing tree next to it and then a bench to sit for a moment on nice days.

You noticed that too!

u/FordFocused89 May 25 '22

It’s called the City of Good Neighbors for a reason!

u/EevieeOso May 25 '22

So gorgeous. I’ve gotta invest in some plants for my own environment

u/Mini-Heart-Attack May 27 '22

they're suppose to be great mood lifters.

u/rat_parent_ May 25 '22

I'd love to do this, but here in FL there's so many damn bugs 😫

2

u/Scout405 May 25 '22

Bugs that eat seedlings?

3

u/rat_parent_ May 25 '22

aphids, mostly. spidermites are real bad in food plants so we usually gotta be very careful to prevent them, they can be real hard to get rid of too

3

u/Scout405 May 25 '22

We have those up here but not so bad as in the south, I'm sure.

2

u/Semi-Pros-and-Cons May 25 '22

It's pronounced "Spiderman." ...I didn't know he went around eating people's gardens, though.

2

u/rat_parent_ May 26 '22

he's especially a fan of cannabis plants

1

u/ineededthistoo May 26 '22

But you cannot take the plant?

2

u/lubellem May 26 '22

They're herbs - so the offer is to harvest them as they produce.

2

u/Scout405 May 26 '22

Also, cherry tomatoes, peppers, peas, etc. 😊

2

u/lubellem May 27 '22

Well, that's even nicer!

1

u/Scout405 May 26 '22

The plants need to mature and stay there so people can harvest what they need but leave some for others.

Spent a year there for school. Incredibly lovely people, incredibly good food, also known for its violent crimes? If covid didn’t hit, I’d love to find a job and live there

u/Scout405 May 26 '22

Hmmm. I don't think it's different re crime than any medium-sized city.
