We didn't write the book on garden tourism, but we're in it!

altThe first-ever book on garden tourism, aptly titled Garden Tourism, is out. The book, written by Dr. Richard Benfield, Associate Professor of Geography at the Central Connecticut State University, is an academic tome covering the history of, and the evolving of, garden tourism from early Egyptian times (around 1,500 BCE), to the time the book was published earlier this year. It's exhaustive.



And Garden Walk Buffalo and Buffalo's National Garden Festival were well represented with a page and a half! In the chapter titled "Outdoor Garden Festivals" there is a brief intro on the origins of Garden Walk Buffalo–its byproduct/outgrowth the National Garden Festival–and stats and research data we've collected over the years from zip code collection and consumer surveys with the help and financial support of Visit Buffalo Niagara.

Garden Walk Buffalo president emeritus, Jim Charlier, wrote an endorsement/quote/review for the back of the book, which reads:
