Garden Walk Highlights

Last Saturday the neighbors living around the UB South Campus showcased their plants, yards and gardening skills in the 8th Annual Samuel P. Capen Garden Walk. Begun as as a way to build community among neighbors, as well as highlight gardens, the Walk had 54 participants this year.

Thank you to all of our neighbors who spent the day opening their yards and sharing their gardening tips. Below are some photos, the rest can be found on the YourUB flickr site.

Here is a backyard on Heath Street.

A young but thriving garden on Deveraux.

Some garden walkers enjoy the colors on Niagara Falls Boulevard.

Here is an audio slideshow from Douglas Levere, A UB photographer.

Any garden within the neighborhoods surrounding the UB South Campus is eligible to participate. Volunteers are invited to help plan the event each year. For more information on the Capen Garden Walk, contact UB Community Relations at 716-829-3099.
