Visit our "Buffalo-style" gardens!

Garden Walk Buffalo is a free, self-guided tour of more than 380 Buffalo gardens, the largest garden tour in America. Held annually on the last weekend of July, in 2014 it will be Saturday and Sunday, July 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"There are Japanese gardens, English gardens, Russian gardens (i.e., barely controlled wildernesses) and what I would call Buffalo gardens - eclectic, funky mixes in which found objects and exotic-looking surrounding rooftops figure prominently." -


Happy birthday to us!

Winding down our 20th anniversary year, the annual Thank You party for the gardeners, volunteers and sponsors was held at Buffalo's 20th Century Club, on Friday, September 12. Around 130 guests were  treated to wine, hors d'oeuvres, and door prizes. We were able to recognize our great sponsors with plaque mounted posters from this year's Walk and verbally thank the gardeners. As a surprise, the 20th Century Club made this great cake for our anniversary. We believe it was, in fact, NOT gnome-flavored.
