Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village is collecting personal stories that illustrate the impact of Covid-19 on local agriculture in the Buffalo Niagara region.


Are you a local farmer or farmers market whose operation has been affected? 

Are you a gardener who planted crops in response to food shortages? 

Did you begin hobby gardening as a form of stress relief? 



We are collecting:

  • art
  • diary entries
  • digital photos
  • links to social media that impart the impact of the pandemic on local agriculture
  • recordings of music
  • videos

These items will be preserved in our collection, as well as potentially displayed in a future exhibit about the impact of Covid-19 on local agriculture.


To submit a personal story, please email covid19@bnhv.org.
