Garden Walk Gives Back
Garden Walk has given nearly $100,000 in Marvin Lunenfeld beautification grants to block clubs, non-profits and neighborhood associations for beautification projects in the neighborhoods of Garden Walk. Marvin Lunenfeld, and his wife Gail McCarthy, were the founders of Garden Walk Buffalo.

Over the years, we've taken YOUR contributions and helped to fund community gardens, hanging basket projects, curb-side planters, and more. In essence, YOU are beautifying Buffalo's great urban neighborhoods. Please consider making a donation this year. And thank you for your past donations.

Award amounts are based on the overall project cost, eligible projects are required to include matching funds from government, private contributions or volunteer sweat equity.
