You can now be involved in one of the City of Edmonds' most iconic, and beautiful, programs. You'll also be helping the city save some money.
The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department is introducing the Adopt-A-Flower Basket program.
"We encourage businesses and citizens to make an investment in our community by adopting a flower basket for a one season donation of $100 per basket," said recreation manager Renee McRae. "The donation helps offset the cost of the City’s flower program."
Donors will select the location of the hanging plant basket, . Once the baskets are placed in June, the City will mark the basket with the donor’s information.
The colorful, flower-laden hanging baskets line Fifth Avenue South, Main Street, Five Corners and other parts of town every summer. They are part of the City's street beautification program, which also includes flower beds in front of businesses.
The city maintains 133 flower baskets in Edmonds, as well as 163 flower beds in 36 locations.
Adopt-A-Flower Basket information and forms can be found on the City’s Web site, as well as in the City Hall and Frances Anderson Center lobbies.
