|Garden Walk Buffalo has produced a 20th Anniversary Commemorative Annual. The 60-page, glossy, magazine-style publication includes features written by the area's leading garden writers: Sally Cunningham, Elizabeth Licata, Connie Oswald Stofko, Rochester's Jane Milliman, and more.
Features include: defining the Buffalo-style garden, how to get the most out of a garden tour, small-space gardening tips from Buffalo gardens, water features from the Walk, grassless front yards, Buffalo's great hellstrips (the area between sidewalk and road), gardening in Buffalo's climate and urban spaces, garden ideas found on the Walk, getting ready for garden tour, the tourism significance of such a large garden tour, a popular Buffalo plant list, 10 great Buffalo Niagara garden destinations, a list of all Buffalo Niagara garden tours, and much, much more.
The magazine is a fundraiser for Garden Walk Buffalo, enabling it to fund Marvin Lunenfeld Beautification Grants for block clubs and community groups, as well as fund Garden Walk Buffalo’s future projects.
Garden Walk Buffalo is America's largest garden tour, with more than 370 residential gardens open to the public for free – no tickets or reservations required. Maps and five shuttle buses are also free. Held the last full weekend of July each year, it hosts tens of thousands of visitors from around the U.S. and Canada. Garden Walk Buffalo's Marvin Lunenfeld Beautification Grants have donated more than $50,000 for beautification projects throughout Buffalo since 2005.
