(A Brief Foreword Note from Niagara At LargeNAL is always pleased to share in this – one of the greatest annual events for celebrating what is best about our neighbourhoods and communities in our bi-national Greater Niagara Region – by giving it some publicity each year.postersspread2011

Congratulations to the many volunteers of Garden Walk Buffalo as they continue their preparations for the 21st year of this world-class event.

Politicians on both sides of the New York/Ontario could learn a good deal about what working together with passion and pride can do to boost communities from this dedicated group of volunteers.)

Buffalo, New York – Garden Walk Buffalo invites gardeners from the Peace Bridge to Main Street and from Canalside to the Scajaquada to be part of the 2016 Garden Walk Buffalo, to be held Saturday and Sunday, July 30 and 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Share your garden and show your pride in our neighborhoods and city.

Garden Walk Buffalo hosts the largest free garden tour in the country with 60,000+ visitors coming from all over the states, Canada, and even further abroad. It has an estimated economic impact of $4.5 million.

There is no contest and no prizes – the objective of the Walk has always been to encourage neighborhood beautification and to promote community pride. Just fill out the application and your garden can become part of this wonderful event.

Your garden does not need to be perfect; no one’s ever is.

Gardens range from large properties to a few square feet – but that is okay – it is the diversity that makes this event a success.

When you fill out the application, you decide how much access to give visitors. If you only want people to see your front garden, that is up to you. You simply indicate that and mark the box on the lawn sign that will be provided to you.
