Neighbors Naturescaping 2020

Maple Block Unit beautifies street barricade planter pots and a space in the nearby park.

While we may have had to do things a little differently this year, Brightside’s small grant program, Neighbors Naturescaping was a success!

Neighborhoods across the region will benefit from 16 different Neighbors Naturescaping gardens built or enhanced from the program this year.

We want to give special thanks to the neighborhood leaders and residents who are committing to care for:

  • 1,360 native perennials
  • 130 grasses and sedges
  • 160 shrubs
  • 20 trees
  • 3,400+ daffodils and tulips

Another thanks to the volunteers who helped load all of theses plants from the Greenhouse in Forest Park into vehicles so they could be transported to their new homes.

Look for these plants to brighten community gardens, city parks, street barricades and other green spaces across the city!

We need your help.

Your donations allow us to do what we do. Please help!
