Hopefully all of the rain Buffalo has been getting as of late is good for gardens because Garden Walk Buffalo, which draws tens of thousands of visitors each year, is coming up soon on July 26th and 27th. We’ve had a few stories on the huge event this year, including a call for homes and about their open-air bus, but much like Buffalo Homecoming, as the event draws closer, the excitement only builds.
Now, flower buffs will have a chance to get together with other gardeners and garden-related organizations during Garden Walk Buffalo. New this year to the event and recently announced will be Garden Talk Buffalo. Area gardening groups will gather in Bidwell Parkway across from the Buffalo Seminary Garden Walk headquarters to chat about a variety of gardening topics.
Gardening groups, plant societies and “green” non-profits will be on hand to answer questions and share info on gardening, recycling, sustainability and conservation between 10 AM and 4 PM both days of Garden Walk Buffalo. An added bonus is that on Saturday, July 26th, Bidwell Parkway will also have the Farmer’s Market present selling locally grown produce from 8 AM till 1 PM, giving you even more reason to head on out to Bidwell.
The list of organizations is impressive and includes:
Buffalo Area Daylily Society
Buffalo Niagara River Keeper
Carvings for a Cause
City of Buffalo/Erie County Recycling & Composting Program
Grassroots Gardens of Buffalo
Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo
WNY Hosta Society
WNY Land Conservancy
WNY Rose Society
WNY Sustainable Energy Association Trust
