Flower Power: Help us spread the joy

March 11, 2019 – FYI, News

Every year, the City and Borough of Juneau relies on the generosity of local citizens to add beautiful flowers to Juneau’s landscape through the Adopt-A-Flower program. All donations go into funding 200 hanging baskets, 60 flower barrels, and 50 flower beds and planters seen throughout the community, from the Juneau International Airport to Downtown Juneau.

Most of these flowers start as seedlings in CBJ’s Mendenhall Valley greenhouse. In preparation for the summer season, Parks & Recreation Landscape Division staff members plant and care for more than 16,000 seedlings. In May, the flowers get planted all over town.

Donations for the Adopt-A-Flower program come in various funding levels. Become a Seedling Sponsor for a donation of $1 to $99, Flower Barrel Sponsor $100 to $199, Hanging Basket Sponsor $200 to $299, and a Flower Bed Sponsor at $300 and above. All donors will be recognized the Adopt-A-Flower sign placed in the Marine Park Plaza. To donate, fill out this form.
