Blitz Blooms Deadline Fast Approaching

Last spring, neighbors were all smiles with their Blitz Blooms ready to head home!

Each year in May, community groups that have come together to clean up the common areas of their neighborhoods have the opportunity to receive free flower seedlings through Brightside St. Louis’ Blitz Blooms program.  Every year, Brightside offers seedlings to neighborhood leaders, community organizations, and block groups that will plant the seedlings in public spaces in their area to help beautify neighborhoods in the city of St. Louis.

The deadline to apply for FREE flower seedlings is fast approaching.  Requests must be submitted by Friday, April 26.  To be eligible to receive the free flower seedlings, groups must register a Blitz clean-up with Brightside by April 26.  By registering a Blitz project, your group has the option to borrow tools from Brightside and/or request trash bags to use during your clean up.  Details about Blitz and registration forms are available online or through our office located at 4646 Shenandoah Ave (314-772-4646).
