You’re Invited: Be A Garden Walk Host!

Dear Village Resident:

I’d like to personally invite you to participate in our 14th Annual Village of Williamsville Garden Walk. This ever popular “green” event will take place on Saturday, July 15th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The mission of our Village of Williamsville Garden Walk is to encourage neighborhood beautification and community pride. Participation is open to any Village resident or business. No judging. No fees. Displaying your garden is a great way to meet fellow gardeners, as well as to show off our delightful neighborhoods. Because the Village is a friendly, “front porch” kind of place, I hope you will encourage your neighbors to participate by banding together to show off the beauty of your front, side and/or rear gardens.  The more “garden clusters”, the better the opportunity to highlight the charm and warmth of our historic community in a fun and engaging way. Last year, we had 30 beautiful Village gardens open to the public. Our volunteer committee members work hard each year to make this a signature event. We are extremely proud that our garden walk has gained region-wide recognition as winner of Buffalo Spree Magazine’s Best of WNY Regional Garden Walk Award.  

If you wish to include your garden in our Village-wide garden party, please complete the registration form and return it to Village Hall by the DEADLINE OF JULY 1st.  You will receive confirmation of your entry and be included in our Garden Walk Passport/Map. In addition to receiving a keepsake 2017 garden plaque, you will also receive valuable garden coupons from our Village businesses as a “thank you” for your participation. Please feel free to contact the Village Clerk’s Office at 632-4120, ext. 3009 for any questions. Visit the Village’s official website and Facebook page below for photos of past Village Garden Walk gardens and gardeners, garden stories, tips and ideas, as well as up to the minute info on all Garden Walk activities, including the Mini Fairy Garden Contest and Mini Fairy Parade in our Pocket Park.

We are proud to be part of Garden Walk Buffalo Niagara, a 6 week-long celebration of 100’s of WNY gardens. For information on all the walks, please visit http://www.gardenwalkbuffalo.com for Weekend Walks & Tours.

I hope you will join us!
