[ARCHIVED] 2021 Westmont Adopt-A-Planter Program

Adopt-A-Planter Graphic

Westmont, Illinois - Date Issued: April 9, 2021

“The Adopt-A-Planter Program was so successful last year that we’ve decided to make it an annual program,” said Public Works Director Mike Ramsey.  “Our residents and businesses did a wonderful job designing, planting, and maintaining the planters around town.  Not only does this program provide a great opportunity for community involvement, but it also beautifies our central business district.”

Residents, businesses, and organizations will sign up for the program, and once their plans are approved, they will be assigned a planter.  Then participants will adopt their planter and be responsible for purchasing the plants and flowers, planting them, and providing general maintenance and care, such as weeding, throughout the summer and fall.  Westmont Public Works will be responsible for watering the planters.  The Village will place an adoption sign in each planter identifying the people and businesses who are sponsoring the planter.

“Last year, we had over 20 people participate in the program,” said Village of Westmont Horticulturist Chadd Devries, who helped coordinate the program.  We hope to get even more people involved this year.  We greatly appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support for the project.”

Sign up for the program has begun.  The Adopt-A-Planter program will officially kick off on Monday, May 17 and continue through the fall.  As there is a limited number of planters in town, participation will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please fill out the form below to apply.
