Girl Scout Troop 31293 plants their adopted box during Planting Day.
Nearly 100 people from businesses, organizations and families participated in beautify downtown on Saturday, May 21. With an early morning start, volunteers from BASF and Boy Scout Troop 373 assisted mulch spreading and planting Annie Oakley Park. From 8:00am until 11:00am on a Saturday morning , Adopt A Box participants were invited to plant their adopted box organized by the Main Street Greenville’s Design Committee.

If you are in downtown this summer, check out the colorful additions to the downtown along with the rows of street poles recognizing the Adopt-A-Box participants. Children, parents, grandparents, co-workers, and friends all took part in the planting of the vibrant colors along South Broadway. “This program was designed to reach out and involve the community and to have an appreciation for downtown Greenville,” stated Mike Henderson, Main Street Greenville Design Chair. Throughout the summer the participants will be maintaining their box while helpful hands from Wayne Industries and community volunteers water, weed and pick up trash.

This year’s program recognizes Miller Flowers, Greenville Rotary Club, BASF, Spencer’s Landscaping, Fresh Air Farms, City of Greenville Street Department, Beltone Hearing, and the Greenville FFA for contributing time, materials and or monetary donation towards this community project.
