Fillmore Community Garden

Bird Works collaborated with the non-profit Fillmore Forward to develop a concept design package for a community garden on an underutilized site in Buffalo, NY.

“Fillmore Forward recognizes that the City of Buffalo is growing and the neighborhoods of Broadway-Fillmore and Martin Luther King Park are an integral part of this renaissance, especially for developing the Fillmore Corridor back to the socially and economically thriving part of Buffalo it was in decades past.”

The design includes community garden spaces, a central pavilion, a natural playground and rain garden.

The group plans to host classes, farmer’s markets and public events on site; giving neighbors an active place that will strengthen their community.
