Plant Give Away Recap, June 2020

Thank you to everyone who participated in Bottineau Neighborhood Association’s annual Plant Giveaway Saturday, June 6th.  This yearly event was pushed out a month, in an effort to adhere to the state’s Stay at Home orders.

Plants were ordered, volunteering was organized and plans were made to present the neighborhood with herbs, vegetables and flowers of all sorts with no clear information on whether or not it would be lawful to do this type of event early in June. It turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day with a constant sound of birds chirping in the background where the neighborhood was eager to come out and support each other.  Residents were presented with seven different vegetables or herbs, twelve different flowers and two different perennials and were told they could choose any plants to take home.

BNA offered up gloves, garbage bags and other cleaning materials for the community to use during their self guided clean ups of the neighborhood and river front, since we could not continue our yearly community clean up in April this year as originally planned. donated masks to the residents who needed masks, so we could all practice social distancing. There were 74 households that came to show support and obtain plants, one of the largest turnouts the  Beautify Bottineau event has ever recorded! We hope everyone enjoyed the new life and found solace in the time spent cleaning up this year on your own, we look forward to seeing the fruits of your labor as we walk around this summer.





Bottineau Neighborhood Association is giving away vegetable plants, herbs, and flowers to Bottineau residents.  We will also have garbage bags available to residents wanting to do a DIY clean up of their neighborhood.
