Edmonds in Bloom, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to beautifying Edmonds, is celebrating 25 years of supporting, tending and celebrating local gardens and garden-related projects. To celebrate, the organization will be gifting $25,000 to support horticultural projects around Edmonds.
According to an Edmonds in Bloom announcement, these funds will support many local gardening projects like its school garden grant programs, downtown hanging baskets and corner gardens, Kruckeberg Botanic Garden, the renovated Civic Center Playfield, a scholarship to an Edmonds Community College student, garden renovation at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, and other projects.
The club will also continue to celebrate the floral beauty of Edmonds with its ongoing events. This starts with the Kids Plant for Mom’s Day May 9 at the Edmonds Museum Saturday Market, where you’ll find kids planting colorful pails of flowers as gifts for their mothers. In June, Edmonds in Bloom flags will begin sprouting up all over town as recognition of beautiful residential gardens and colorful business storefronts.
The annual Garden Tour on July 19 will highlight seven of the loveliest gardens in the city, followed by the annual raffle and garden party in August. This year, the organization says it has a “a very special raffle item” that will be announced in the next month or so. So stay tuned for the announcement.
