Letter to Cooper-Young: Garden Walk invites participation

Dear Cooper-Young Residents,

The Cooper Young Garden Club would like to personally invite you and your family to participate in our 2nd annual Cooper-Young Garden Walk. Our neighborhood garden tour happens May 20th-21st. Garden tours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m. daily with garden speakers from 3-4:30 p.m.  Get your two-day pass tickets by May 5th for $15 or $20 after May 5th. Order online at https://cygardenwalk.eventsmart.com or pick-up at CYCA office.

The Cooper Young Garden Club is thrilled to showcase all the wonderful, unique, and beautiful gardens of Cooper-Young.

The purpose of our Garden Walk is to invite visitors and neighbors to take a peek at what our vibrant community has to offer. We want to show off our cozy streets and trendy shops and encourage neighborhood beautification and pride. In our second year, we’ve tripled our gardens, added open artist studios, the Peabody Elementary garden, more green businesses and educational booths, and have a bike valet. All money raised will fund future neighborhood beautification projects.

We’re inviting all homes in the neighborhood to join this garden party by dressing up your front and side yards before the big day. The more homes decorated with flowers, the better to highlight the charm, warmth, community, and pride of our historic neighborhood.

Here are ways you can show your community spirit:

• Buy tickets early and come explore your neighborhood.

• Like and share the Cooper Young Garden Walk on social media.

• Hang garden walk flyers at your business and/or church.

• Encourage your friends to come on the garden walk.

• Beautify your garden/porch to welcome our visitors.

• Buy an ad in the May Lamplighter.

• Volunteer to check tickets and earn a free two-day pass

Although this is only our second garden walk, we are expecting about 2,000 visitors. We hope that many of our garden visitors are Cooper-Young residents. It’s a great way to meet your neighbors!

We look forward to seeing your beautiful yard. Thanks for participating!

The Cooper Young Garden Club
