|We have a new fan at Martha Stewart Living|
Stacey Hirvela, Senior Associate Gardening Editor for Martha Stewart Living, was invited to Garden Walk Buffalo at the invitation of the Buffalo Niagara Convention and Visitors Bureau. While there is no promise of any editorial coverage of Garden Walk Buffalo, our generous gardeners, or our beautiful gardens in the magazine, it appears Buffalo has gained a new fan.
"My weekend in Buffalo was fantastic, I can speak about it only in superlatives. It was one of the most wonderful experiences I've been involved with during my time with the magazine, so forgive me for gushing!"
"Both my husband and I fell in love with Buffalo. Everywhere you go, you see beautiful homes and amazing architecture."
"The thing that impressed me most about Buffalo is the people and their level of community involvement. The Martin house has 400 volunteers, for example. There is the individual citizen-funded 21st Century Fund. There are all sorts of community gardens and community beautification projects like the 16th Street Block Alliance (a very cool stop on the Garden Walk)."
"As a gardener, though, I was absolutely floored by Urban Roots Community Garden Center: "
"Most people wouldn't think of Buffalo as an epicenter of American horticulture, but it looks like gardening may be their official pastime."
