Silo City
Buffalo, New York
Many are drawn to Silo City to witness the ruins of the grain shipping industry that built this city, but there is also inspiration to be found in the fecundity of nature on this 27 acres where decades of human abandonment has set the stage for new ecological relationships to evolve. Today this place is a living laboratory of ecological regeneration, featuring educational programming, composting and urban agriculture, and other climate resiliency initiatives.  More about this project >
