On July 13th, after over 2 years of planning, MAP broke ground on its new Farmhouse and Community Food Training Center on Massachusetts Avenue!! The new Farmhouse will be a hub for food and agriculture-based education that will provide resources and volunteer opportunities to Buffalo residents, schools, community gardeners and organizations. The new building, which is expected to be completed in the Summer of 2017 will include a new indoor and outdoor training space, a commercially licensed teaching kitchen, improved food storage capacity for our farm and Mobile Market and a home base for MAP’s Growing Green Program.
This project would not be possible without our very generous supporters and donors including:
