2014 GardenWalk

It is fun to imagine that people from all over Northeast Ohio and beyond are coming to Cleveland to tour GardenWalk Cleveland gardens. As you might guess, In 2014 most of our visitors came from Cuyahoga County. We also had visitors from Loraine, Medina, Geauga, Lake, Summit, Stark, Wayne, Portage, Ashland, Delaware, Richland, Franklin, Columbiana, Wood, and Trumbull counties. Of course, we can't forget to mention we had 2014 visitors from Buffalo and Rochester, New York, Smock, Pennsylvania, and from far away, Japan.

Cathryn Kapp created a 13 foot purple iris to represent GardenWalk Cleveland in Parade the Circle 2012. The iris opened and closed, using a system of ropes and pulleys, as the float was pulled around University Circle. An estimated 75,000 attended Parade the Circle which had a record number of floats this year. Kitty McWilliams seen behind the float, Cathryn and Kim Kimlin, seen in front, Jan Kious, Kate Monter Durban, Chris Henry and at times the entire committee helped with various parts of the float. The iris is being stored until October 7 when it will represent GardenWalk at the Centennial Celebration of the west Side Market.

GardenWalk committee members, led by Cathryn Kapp and Kitty McWilliams, are busy creating a float for Parade the Circle on Saturday, June 9. The float consists of a thirteen foot iris, which opens and closes mechanically, surrounded by pots of peonies. Three beautiful maidens will flutter around the iris and four strong young men will pull the float around the circle. The actual parade is from noon to 1 pm. 75,000 attend Parade the Circle so it is best to get there early to get a good view.  This is a picture of Cathryn working on the petals of the iris in the artist's tent at the Museum of Art.

The GardenWalk Cleveland Cash Mob at Grace Bros in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood was a great success this past Saturday 14 April 2012. From 10AM until 4PM, about 200 people came to join in the fun and spent $3000. Don, Katie and Kevin Grace had extra people present to assist all the people that came to learn about this new farm, pet, and garden store located at 1907 West 5th Street and do a little shopping. Along with the Mob at Grace Bros, many went a few blocks north to Gypsy Bean for After-Mobbing and/or brought their coffee, tea and goodies back to the store for more fun.

What’s the best way to say thank you? For a new business, would you think with a Cash Mob?! That’s right a cash mob.

Last summer on June 25, Kevin and Don Grace came to the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood as visitors on the first annual GardenWalk Cleveland (GWC). They liked what they found on the tour so much that they made the business decision to open their new location on the southern edge of the Gordon Arts and Entertainment District in the heart of the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood. The farm, pet and garden store is just steps away from where they saw some incredible urban gardens on GWC. When the organizers of GWC heard this story, they felt a desire to thank these businessmen.
