It all began decades ago with the seed of an idea…and for that seed to continue to grow, we need YOUR support! As we look back at 2017, we are so very grateful to the community for supporting us and allowing us to continue our mission to preserve and enhance the beauty of our communities. Your support has enabled Bucks Beautiful to grow over the years to include the following programs and events:
Replant Bucks – It is heartbreaking to witness the recent devastating effects of disease and invasive insects, such as the Spotted Lanternfly and the Emerald Ash Borer, on the tree canopy in Bucks County. Through Replant Bucks, our newest initiative, Bucks Beautiful is committed to lead the way in facilitating the reforestation of our local communities and working with the other local organizations in their efforts to replant.
Bulbs for Bucks – Over 1,300,000 daffodils planted throughout Bucks County, including an additional 100,000 planted this fall. This past spring we were especially proud to have blooming daffodils honoring many who have come before us: our fallen veterans at Washington Crossing Memorial Cemetery, the Chalfont Cemetery, the Pearl S. Buck House, as well as celebrating 100 years of scouting in Lenape Park in Sellersville.
Maintain Bucks County Public Gardens – Provide support for the maintenance of local gardens such as those at the YMCA, Delaware Valley University and CB West.
Pop-up Parks – Bringing public awareness to the need for more green space in our urban areas with the wonderfully successful pop-up parks.
Kitchen & Garden Tour – Our annual fundraising event showcasing the work of local builders, landscapers and homeowners who help create beautiful Bucks County homes and gardens.
Community Garden Grants – Since 1991 we have been providing grants for the development of community gardens throughout Bucks County.
Educational Seminars – We continue to partner with Delaware Valley University with our popular spring and fall gardening community educational lecture series.
Horticultural Scholarships – Bucks Beautiful is committed to educating our youth, offering scholarships to students majoring in horticultural related fields.
