Mile of Flowers Plant-In
May 30, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFREE!
Come out and join the biggest planting event in Courtenay! The Mile of Flowers is marking 55 years of filling Cliffe Avenue boulevards with colourful blooms on Tuesday, May 30.
The Plant-in starts at 5 p.m. and goes until around 7 p.m. Volunteers from the community are invited to fill the garden beds on both sides of Cliffe Avenue from 8th to 21st Streets with summer flowers provided by the City of Courtenay.
No prior experience is required – just pick an open spot, and start planting. Participants are asked to bring garden gloves and a trowel or spoon for digging.
Typically, between 200 and 500 volunteers are needed.
Planting participants are invited to a free BBQ at Standard Park (Cliffe Avenue and 14th Street) courtesy of Courtenay Rotary & City of Courtenay.
The City of Courtenay sends heartfelt thanks to all the community volunteers, clubs and organizations who have helped beautify our community for so many years.
