The GO Bike Buffalo Community Workshop is a place where volunteers and members can go and learn to repair and maintain their bicycles. They have complete refurbished bicycles for sale, along with a stock of used parts available to everyone. The shop also serves as a place to donate your used and / or unwanted bicycles. They are happy to provide you with a tax reciept for your donation.
Catherine Tumber, author of Small, Gritty, and Green: The Promises of America’s Smaller Industrial Cities in a Low Carbon World (MIT Press, 2012), will discuss how industrial hubs like Buffalo can be at the forefront of the new economy. Based on direct observation, Tumber’s research presents a compelling case that rust belt cities can serve as models for sustainable urban living and are increasingly important geographic sites for ingenuity and innovation in the new economy.
Free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the Partnership for the Public Good, Buffalo First, the John R. Oishei Foundation, and the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo.
