In efforts to transform vacant lots next to City Honors School in the Fruit Belt neighborhood, City Honors students have decided to turn one lot in particular into a community garden. Last October the foundation for the garden was laid. The students named it the Pelion Community Garden, after the Greek mythology homeland of the school’s mascot, Chiron the Centaur.
In June, many of the City Honors students, National Grid, Groundwork Buffalo, and Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus volunteers will go back to polish up the garden while cleaning up the surrounding area.
