Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. This event has sponsorship and advertising opportunities. Many volunteers are needed and we all have a fun time.
The Welcome tables will be on Bowmanville & Bell and at Balmoral & Ravenswood
This event is unique and fun in several ways.
- The Bowmanville garden walk features hosted gardens, where the garden owners are there to welcome you into their garden and talk about their efforts. The hospitality overflows.
- This garden walk hosts an Ask the Master Gardener table at the Welcome table on Bowmanville Avenue, where University of IL Master Gardeners are there to talk to you about gardening and look at any cutting or photo you bring and help solve problems and plot your next steps.
- The garden walk includes an amateur photography competition. The winning photograph is featured in the next year’s Garden Walk posters, signage and promotional materials.
- A Garden Party is hosted the evening of the event where all participating gardeners, volunteers and judges come together as well as members of the BCO Board of Directors to celebrate gardening in Bowmanville.
The Bowmanville Garden Walk is a Rain or Shine event!
Posters from past garden walks celebrate the history of the event and feature winning photo entries from the previous year. Enjoy some of the past posters below.
