NEW EVENT: Daffodils for Seattle!

As Summer fades and Fall arrives so does the idea that all trees and plants will die. What many don't know is that Fall is actually the perfect time to plant certain flowers. One of the flowers that are best planted in the Fall are daffodils, one of the biggest attractions in Volunteer Park, Seattle. In fact, in that city landmark, there is a beautiful and impressive swath of yellow dominating the park. To help those daffodils return to where they belong, Volunteer Park Trust and Connect Volunteering partnered to help plant 25,000 daffodil bulbs on October 8th, 2021. Now we need your help in doing so!

Bring your gardening gloves and mask. We will provide tools, bulbs, free coffee & donuts, and water. You are welcome to stay for the whole event (running from 10 AM to 2 PM), or you can come for only a part of it. Bring friends or come alone, everyone is welcome! Meet us at the SW entrance to Volunteer Park - at the staircase across the street from 1065 E. Prospect St.

This project is being done in tribute to Doug Bayley, co-founder of Volunteer Park Trust and the visionary who conceived that eye-catching and mesmerizing yellow returning permanently every spring. Flowering bulbs—and daffodils in particular—have long been a component in historic Olmsted-designed landscapes across the country and provide a welcome burst of bright, seasonal color. Help us pay tribute to Doug and make a huge difference in our city.
