The City of Edmonds announced this week that is has launched its Adopt-A-Flower Basket and Adopt-A-Corner Park programs for 2014. This is the third year for the basket program and the second year for corner parks. Businesses and citizens are encouraged to participate.
Flower baskets are $100 each for the season. Corner parks range from $125 to $500, with the majority $250 each. Your donation helps offset the cost of the City’s flower program.
This year there are 138 baskets and 49 corner parks available for adoption. Donors select the basket or corner park location, and the city plants them with assistance from the Edmonds Floretum Garden Club. Once the baskets are placed in June, the city will mark the basket with the donor’s information. The corner parks will be marked shortly after adoption.
City staff maintains 176 individual flower beds in 39 locations throughout the City and 138 flower baskets. Information and forms can be found at flowerprogram.edmondswa.gov and the Frances Anderson Center.
