Home and Garden Tours from Long Beach California to Buffalo New York




The Long Beach Real Estate Home Blog is pleased to welcome guest author, Buffalo New York Realtor, Colleen Kulikowski.



Summer is a great time to enjoy and show pride in Southern California gardens. Many communities show great pride in their gardens. One such community is that of Buffalo NY . One weekend each year over 300 home owners open their gardens to the community and celebrate GardenWalk weekend. Imagine 10,000 people enjoying gardens on a summer weekend .


The California Heights Historic District celebrates its 12th Annual Home and Garden Tour on Sunday, October 19, 2008. A trolley will be provided, visitors are welcomed to walk, its a great neighborhood to take a stroll in! The 2007 flyer can be viewed here with lots of pictures and details.



Long Beach also has several public gardens for its residents to enjoy nature’s beauty:


Do you live in a Long Beach Condo and crave a garden of your very own? Guess what you are in luck! You too can enjoy planting a garden and growing flowers and vegetables. Conceived in 1976, the Long Beach Community Garden provides membership to Long Beach residents for just $50 a year. A grass roots organization run by its members helps keep this organization running.

The Long Beach Community Garden Association is located at 7600B E Spring Street in Long Beach, across from Animal Control. Thousands of pounds of produce from the gardens feed the less fortunate of our community through the generous donations of the members of the Long Beach Community Garden. The association invites you to their annual Tomato Festival Saturday, July 26, 2008, 11 AM – 2 PM.

Not interested in the public gardening program? Want to enhance your Long Beach Condo patio? Try filling planters with flowers! Bring a little bit of garden beauty to your home. Enhance your Long Beach home by showing pride in it.

    The California Heights Historic District flyer had me interested. Just looking at it was wild. $4,000 for a home? Man, how I’d love to be able to buy at those prices, with today’s money! Ha!
    Thanks for sharing!
