Flower Baskets on Main Street is a community beautification project that features colorful, blooming, pollinator friendly flowers in baskets that hang on light poles in the downtown district of Placerville, from June to September. The Flower Baskets on Main Street project assists in preserving and promoting the historic, cultural, social and economic vitality of the downtown district that enhances the streetscape and instills a sense of pride for those that live, work, or visit our historic town.

The project engages community partnership that includes our friends at Mother Lode Rehabilitation Enterprises (M.O.R.E).

There was also an event on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at the Bell Tower with the UCCE Master Gardeners of El Dorado CountyBlooming Baskets for Butterflies. See more about that here!

The Placerville Downtown Association is proud to announce that The Women’s Fund El Dorado has awarded PDA a community benefit grant of $6,000 to the Flower Baskets on Main Street project in 2017. Take a tour of the 2017 Flower Baskets on Main Street here!

The Flower Baskets on Main Street project would not be possible without the support of community partners, organizations, City governments, and individual contributions.
