Urban Farming in Buffalo – Back to the Future
Sow the Seed
My father grew up on the East Side of Buffalo and occasionally shares stories from his youth. He recently told me one about how he worked for a neighbor who farmed his property. This man, remembered by my father only as Mr. Shuh*, owned three homes in a row. He lived in one and rented out the other two. But he farmed all three backyards. He had chickens, grew vegetables, and also loved to grow flowers.
