Garden Walk Buffalo Applications for 2012

“Projects like these are contributing to the rebirth of our neighborhoods in the City of Buffalo,” said Beautification Grant Committee Chair Jeffery Tooke. He is talking about the dozens of beautification projects totaling more that $30,000 dollars in the past few years, funded by Garden Walk Beautification Grants.

Grant applications are once again being offered to block clubs and neighborhood groups working on various community gardens and other projects aimed at beautifying our streets such as hanging flower baskets, street corner planter projects, garden restoration and more.

Award projects will be highlighted during the coming year’s Garden Walk, which is held annually on the last weekend in July. In 2012, the free event will take place July 28 and 29 from 10am to 4pm. Over 370 residents and businesses throughout the West side open their creative urban gardens to tens of thousands of visitors from the U.S., Canada, and abroad.

Completed applications for grants are due December 30, 2011. Funding awards will be announced in early Spring 2012.
