The gardens at the Moot Senior Community Center in the Fruit Belt are just a year old, but they're on the verge of growing more this summer.
"They filled it up," said Jonathan McNeice, director of healthy communities for the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Inc. "It was a hit and said they need more planters."
The gardens – off of 292 High St. – are raised box planters to enable seniors to plant fruits, vegetables and some flowers. The BNMC ordered more material and provided four more raised planting beds this week to add to the eight installed last summer. Tomatoes, peppers, herbs and eggplant are among the harvested vegetables.
The center is part of the Buffalo Federation of Neighborhood Centers.
