The city's East Side is being transformed, vacant lot by vacant lot. In the last two years parts of Buffalo's urban prairie has been transformed into urban farms. If you're curious and have ever wondered what this development means for the City, join me on Saturday June 19th for the first Tour de Agros!

We'll meet at the Sonic Cafe, across from Artspace for a 10am departure. Our three hour route will loop through the City's East side. We'll stop at three urban farms. You'll have a chance to talk with some of the most dedicated city residents who are committed to transforming the city - Caesandra Seawell/Buffalo ReUse - Daniel Ash at Southampton & Masten and our last stop will include the Wilson Street Farm and a visit with Mark and Janice Stevens. Between the three scheduled stops - we'll also take time to examine the urban prairie.
Previous bicycle tours have focused on the City's neglected heritage structures - Tour de Neglect. The new focus on urban agriculture here in Buffalo reflects a wider trend in other urban centers. Here's the map.
Meet-up: Sonic Cafe, across from Artspace.
