    Did you know that Garden Tourism yearly in the US exceeds the number of tourists going to Disney World, Disney Land or Las Vegas?  People are hungry for the great outdoors even as we become more tethered to our indoor screens.  Garden Walks are a powerful catalyst for neighborhood beautification and pride. Every year, more homeowners opt to showcase their garden efforts and inspire others to go home and do the same.  Garden Walks are a potent venue for showing off new garden trends, plants, and equipment. They inspire visitors of all ages to go outdoors and remake their spaces as sanctuaries for people, plants, and pollinators.
