The Bowmanville Community Organization (BCO) Garden Walk featured over 19 residential gardens and 3 community gardens including the Bowmanville Community Garden 1st place winner in 2006 in Mayor Daley’s Community Landscape Award program (Region 2).

Bowmanville residents welcome the public by opening their yards to display their gardens creating a friendly venue of hospitality and shared learning about gardening.  The gardens are also reviewed on various criteria including design, creative use of plants, and neighborhood enhancement.  The University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener Program will be hosting their “Ask a Master Gardener” information table.  This year a special education program was presented at the Gateway Garden by Master gardeners Bobbie Seltzer and Pierre Poinsett.  At the end of the day the Garden Walk award party welcomed all the particpants and we also had a special guest; Congressman Mike Quigley.
