Living in New Canaan, we are all attuned to the changing of the seasons, and the season of growing is fast approaching. With that in mind, we hope you will donate to support the New Canaan Beautification League. Every dollar goes towards our year-round efforts to keep New Canaan beautiful, blooming, and buzzing.
Have you ever stopped by the mailboxes on Pine Street and noticed the bees enjoying our pollinator-friendly garden, planted with strategic (and stunning) seasonal blooms? That’s us. Have you seen vibrant flowers in the 225 hanging baskets downtown during a summer evening stroll and wondered how they got there? That’s us, too. Did you spot cheerful wreaths and cheeky gnomes downtown during the holiday season? Have you stopped by Lee Garden on Chichester Road to visit the jewel-box garden of specimen azaleas and rhododendrons when they bloom in May? Those are us, too.
All of these efforts are thanks to nearly 200 talented volunteers in the New Canaan Beautification League. We are a varied, vibrant, and deeply creative community, from first-time gardeners to local legends, and between us, hold a treasure trove of gardening knowledge that we put to good use in public spaces in town. Partnering with the town, we’re proud of what we accomplish every year. But we can’t do it without you!
Please know that your tax-deductible donation is an investment in our gorgeous community and the dedicated volunteers who care about New Canaan as much as you do.
