Since the Westcott Neighborhood Bulb Project started in 2003, approximately 110,000 spring blooming bulbs (daffodils, crocuses, tulips etc.) have been planted by neighborhood volunteers and residents.
The concept is simple – Individuals and community groups volunteer to plant bulbs in spaces such as schools, median strips, libraries, front lawns etc.
Bulb Giveaway and Garden Extravaganza – Saturday, October 5, 2013 – 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Westcott Community Center. (For Westcott neighborhood residents only)
Individuals who are willing to plant bulbs in front of their houses where all can enjoy the blooms, pick up packets (12) of free bulbs in the fall. Last year 300 people from the Westcott neighborhood participated.
In 2010 we expanded the project city wide. Outside the Westcott neighborhood we sell bulbs in bags of 100 to individuals and community organizations. Each community organization decides what will be done in their neighborhood. See our History page to learn what the different neighborhood organizations accomplished.
For children our two librarians on the WNBP put together a list of ten garden related books.
