Flower Baskets on Main Street

 

VDA’s flower basket program, one of the happiest signs of spring and summer in our downtown will be back this year. The flower basket program is managed by volunteers (ordering, distributing, and take down)

This is the time when fundraising is critical. Will you help? This beloved program is funded 100% by donations. We will be hanging 75 baskets throughout our downtown and program costs are going up significantly this year. Each basket will cost $220 to support. Gifts large and small all add together to cover costs. Your support is more important than ever! Baskets must be watered daily. One days that exceed 80 degrees, they must be watered twice. VDA will be hiring a special crew to tend to the care of the baskets, making sure that they are happy and healthy and spreading cheer with their showy blooms.

This photo was taken by downtown resident Gerald Bartlett.  You will find this basket at East Fork Cellars on 6th and Esther by Esther Short Park.

This year, we added baskets along Evergreen to link the library to Main Street.  VDA knows that reinforcing connections from one busy spot to another will create bonds and interest.  The flower baskets along with public art, street trees and lights all work together to unify our downtown.

Make a donation to our flower basket program and keep downtown blooming.

Thank you 2016 Donors!(as of 06/02/2016)
