Rochester planning to expand community gardens
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Part of the fun of gardening is in the planning, and Rochester Mayor Malik Evans wants to inspire new gardeners to join the vibrant community.
The city has created a website with information on how to apply for and receive a garden permit for city-owned vacant lots.
The mayor says spring is a time for transformation and aims to make communities around Rochester more beautiful, as well as build connections between elders and youth.
Anyone living near a city-owned vacant lot is invited to start a new community garden.
