The article, covers everything — from the tour that inspired ours, Chicago’s Sheffield Garden Walk, our founders, the tour’s growth over the years, the fact that it is “utterly free of the white-glove exclusivity that pervades many tours of private gardens,” the work of the Garden Walk Committee, its game-changing nature as it applies to Buffalo’s image, and descriptions of what you’ll find on the Walk itself.
The best part of the article, I think, is not so much about our Walk, and what it does for Buffalo, but what you will see and learn by visiting this particular garden tour. Elizabeth did a great job of laying out what makes this walk unique — challenging conceptions of what a garden can be: big things can happen in small spaces, you don’t need grass; and great design doesn’t have to cost a cent. I would only add the fact that artworks, of any type — paintings, architectural remnants, found art, and even bowling balls — can make a garden uniquely yours.
And besides Elizabeth, Garden Walk Buffalo cannot thank enough the contribution of Don Zinteck’s photography used in the article.
