The Senior Connection and Sawtooth Botanical Garden are teaming up to make the Wood River Valley bloom. In the fall of 2021, these two organizations will plant 10,000 daffodil bulbs at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. Those flowers will be destined to bloom in the spring of 2022, kicking off an annual festival celebrating spring, our seniors and the appeal of our community’s public botanical garden.
This spring and summer, the two organizations will be raising funds by selling daffodil bulbs for their fall planting. Next spring will offer viewing parties and a celebratory event.
“This project will last for decades,” said Marty Lyon, Daffodil Festival committee chair. “We intend to help it grow each year to become an event that will boost our local economy.”
Proceeds from the Daffodil Festival will be equally shared between these two community nonprofits, allowing them to prolong quality of life for our seniors and allow residents and visitors to explore the unique beauty and diversity of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden.
