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”. And this article by our Board member Sharon Woods Hussey appeared in the 2017 Daffy issue of Yesterday’s Island.
5,000 daffodils were planted in 4 spots along Milestone Road on November 5th 2020. In light of COVID-19, bulbs were planted by landscape crews rather than volunteers this year.
Through a special “Daffodil Planting Donation” at the Dreamcatcher Dinner and Auction the Foundation has raised over $75,000 in recent years and has planted about 100,000 donated daffodils. They’re planted in honor of all of our volunteers and caregivers working around the clock to improve the lives of critically ill patients and loved ones every day.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, Nantucket Landscapes, Ryan Landscaping, the Garden Club of Nantucket, and community volunteers who have all contributed or participated over the years.
