Since the Westcott Neighborhood Bulb Project started in 2003, approximately 50,000 spring blooming bulbs (daffodils, crocuses, tulips etc.) have been planted by neighborhood volunteers and residents.
The concept is simple – Community groups volunteer to plant bulbs in public spaces such as schools, median strips, libraries etc. Individuals who are willing to plant bulbs in front of their houses where all can enjoy the blooms, pick up packets (18) of free bulbs in the fall. Last year 300 people from the neighborhood participated.

To also help promote the neighborhood we run a yearly photo contest. See this years winning photos and photographers.
Resident artists have their garden art on display. Our librarians have a list of ten garden related books for children. To share extra plants from your garden or request plants for a neighborhood garden project visit our plant sharing list serve.
