 Pansy Planting in Stamford Downtown

 Wednesday, March 30, 2016, 12:45pm

Pansies, pansies and more pansies
1,680 yellow and 432 blue pansies will appear in Stamford Downtown
For the last 20 years the Stamford Downtown Streetscape Volunteers, led by Streetscape Coordinator Marion Glowka, have marked the onset of spring with the planting of thousands of pansies in planters and gardens through out the downtown.  This year is no exception.  Once again as many as 16 volunteers, affectionately nicknamed Garden Groomers, will take on the task.  2,100 plants will be dropped off on Broad Street at 12:45 PM and distributed to pairs of volunteers who will carry them to their assigned location around the downtown.  Watch for them at Old Town Hall, Kiwanis Park, Spring Street, Broad Street and Atlantic Street as well as many other downtown locations

Feel free to follow one of our volunteers on their planting journey.
