And by the way, If it isn't the best run gardening event in the whole US of A, it's gotta be right up there. I just browsed their website (a great example for events of any kind) and found all kinds of sponsors, gardening-related or not. Then there's the Garden Walk book, the DVD, the poster, the banner, the t-shirts, the first-rate press kit, and especially "Garden Walk Gives Back," where you find out the event supports community gardens, street beautification and all that good stuff. Jim/Art of Gardening, President of the Garden Walk committee, can be thanked for much of that, and our Elizabeth has been lending a hand behind the scenes for many years.
What is it?
341 gardens open Saturday and Sunday, all FREE to the public. A mid-summer event that's done more for Buffalo over its 15 years than could ever be calculated. You can't help loving this small, affordable city that's artistically vibrant and brimming with community spirit.
