Held on a Saturday in early November each year.
The 2015 planting was on November 7th. Check back for the 2016 date.
Through a special “Daffodil Planting Donation” at the Dreamcatcher Dinner and Auction the Foundation has raised over $50,000 in recent years and has planted over 75,000 donated daffodils. Their beauty each spring should serve as a reminder of hope and renewal as well as of community.
Thanks to Champoux Landscape and J&M Landscape Services for coordinating this annual event and for donating materials and labor. Thanks also to the students and staff of the Nantucket New School, Ernst Land Design, and community volunteers for their help. Over the years we have also received assistance from Nantucket Landscapes, Ryan Landscaping, and the Garden Club of Nantucket.
Please take a moment to read this nice piece on our annual planting by Shellie Dunlap of Lee Real Estate. It’s called “Sowing Seeds”.
