Each year, one of our volunteers (who has completed the Master Gardener Volunteer training) creates a flower plan for Main Street. She “does the math”
and calculates how many flowers
are needed to fill 31 cedar planter
boxes, 13 window boxes, 5 raised
beds, and 8 garden corners.
She chooses flowers carefully,
taking into consideration the
mature size, sustainability,
and color impact of the flowers.
Since 2020 there has been no judging
of Renaissance projects and no
prize money has been awarded.
2019 Livingston Manor won first place in the
Community Beautification category. The judges
noted the “continuous flow of color”
on Main Street and that garden maintenance
was “well demonstrated.” They noted that
home owners and business owners have joined
in - creating beautiful gardens, planters and
hanging baskets on their properties. The
participation of the LMCS Class of 2023 on
Help Day and the H.S. art class’s contributions
to our fund raising efforts were praised.
In 2018 Livingston Manor won third place in the Community Beautification category.
The judges commented, “Congratulations on a wonderful display of gardens and baskets.
Great volunteer spirit and organization.”
