On May 22, over 60 people from businesses, organizations and families came to beautify downtown. With the early morning start, volunteers from BASF assisted in the unloading and spreading of mulch on the downtown tree boxes. From 8:00am until 11:00am on a Saturday morning people inundated the downtown to plant their adopted box organized by the Main Street Greenville’s Design Committee.
If you are in downtown this summer, check out the colorful additions to the downtown along with the rows of street poles recognizing the Adopt-A-Box participants. Children, parents, grandparents, co-workers, and friends all took part in the planting of the vibrant colors along South Broadway. “This program was designed to reach out and involve the community and to have an appreciation for downtown Greenville,” stated Mike Henderson, Main Street Greenville Design Chair. Throughout the summer the participants will be maintaining their box while helpful hands of more community volunteers water the boxes and pots.
This year’s program recognizes Miller Flowers, Greenville Rotary Club, BASF, Spencer’s Landscaping, Fresh Air Farms, City of Greenville Street Department and the Greenville FFA for contributing time, materials and or monetary donation towards this community project.
