What is a RevCommunity Ride?
Workout as a team with Colleen & Brandon for a strength-building, heart-pumping 60 minue Rev+TotalBody. Then head (as a team) to a special Revolution volunteer event in the Buffalo community. Do something good for your mind, your body, and those around you.

RevCommunity Rev+TotalBody, June 4: The Game Plan
9:45-10:45am: Workout!
10:45-11am: Quick drive to the assigned garden in Buffalo, NY: International School 45 at 141 Hoyt Street. (Carpooling/biking encouraged!)
11am-1pm: Raise garden beds and help with garden prep for the season.

We’d love to have you join us for this special opportunity to better our bodies, our minds and the community. A RevWorkout generates a whole lot of feel-good, do-good energy. Let’s share the love!

If you’d like to be a part of this exclusive Rev event, please reserve your spot here. Can't make the class but want to volunteer - email us at info@revolutionbuffalo.com to get in on the fun. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends, bond with your current friends (yes, they can come too!) and support a local organization that helps neighborhoods bloom all throughout the city.

Last year's volunteers hard at work!

Learn more about Grassroots Gardens.

Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo helps residents create and sustain community gardens on vacant properties in the city. Currently, there are 100 community gardens in Buffalo. These gardens beautify and strengthen neighborhoods, enable the productive use of vacant properties, and improve the overall quality of life for residents. Grassroots Gardens’ community gardens provide numerous benefits to the community, from greening neighborhoods through the planting of flowers, shrubs and trees, to providing fresh produce and herbs to residents who otherwise may not have access to healthy food. Other important benefits of community gardens include education – horticulture, urban agriculture, nutrition and health, neighborhood revitalization, building civic pride and rebuilding a sense of community in some of the city’s most disenfranchised neighborhoods.

Community gardeners share a common love of the City of Buffalo, a commitment to their neighborhoods and a belief that through hard work, initiative, perseverance and neighbor-to-neighbor collaboration, they have the power to make positive change happen in their communities.
