Downtown businesses – meet us in front of your flower pot (bring a hand spade, gloves, and a jug of water) to plant your urn.   Provided we have enough volunteers, we would also like to clean up some of the parking lots in downtown.Main Street Flowers_051912_1717

Uniontown’s flowers are paid for with contributions through the Green Gardeners.  The Green Gardeners plant the urns and troughs located on the side streets off Main Street;  the Marshall Monument at five corners; and Marshall Courtyard.

The flowers are grown and delivered by Bill David of David’s Greenhouse.

This year several varieties of coleus, grasses, and calendula will decorate the urns along the main corridors of the downtown area.
