One Symphony Circle, Inc. and Kleinhans Community Association (KCA), along with members of the Allentown community, are teaming up this Saturday, October 12th at 10:00 a.m. to plant a garden on the Wadsworth Street side of the First Presbyterian Church building.
It will truly be a community effort, with plants donated from residents throughout the Kleinhans and Allentown neighborhoods. Landscape Architect, Brian Dold, from the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, has also lent his professional touch in generously contributing the creation of a basic garden plan and assisting with the marking of the area for planting.
The initiative was originally envisioned by Liz Kolken, an active board member of One Symphony Circle, Inc. and proprietor of The Quaker Bonnet Eatery.
Anyone interested in donating plants may show up at the church grounds at One Symphony Circle this Saturday at 10:00 am. The garden is predominately a shade garden and plants suited to shade would be most welcome.
The mission of One Symphony Circle, Inc. is to assure the ongoing preservation, restoration, and maintenance of the registered historic landmark building located at One Symphony Circle as a community asset for future generations.
This is the kickoff to a new season for the iconic First Presbyterian Church building, and a lead-in to the start of a busy November for One Symphony Circle, as the group begins efforts to restore this Buffalo architectural gem to its majestic grandeur. The beautification will continue on Wadsworth St. in the second week of November with removal of asphalt and planting of trees from ReTree WNY.
Additionally, there will be the kickoff of One Symphony Circle’s campaign to “Save the Tower” with a party hosted by Kevin Cunningham of KC’s Fitness with Lloyd Taco Trucks on Friday, November 15th at the church. The event is open to the public, and tickets will be available for $40 with all proceeds to benefit the preservation, restoration and maintenance of the building at One Symphony Circle.
