NYC Blooms Again
Join Us in Planting a Million Daffodils in
Memory of the World Trade Center Victims 


Dear Parks, Recreation and Open Space Supporter, 

Please join us in our project to Plant a Million Daffodils in Memory of the
World Trade Center Victims. The event will allow New Yorkers to 
honor those lost on September 11th by participating in the largest
citizen-driven planting effort in the city's history. 

This event, sponsored by The Parks Council, Parks2001 - the Coalition for
NYC Parks, and the New York City Department of Parks 
and Recreation offers New Yorkers the chance to get their hands dirty and
work side-by side renewing their spirits. 

In the spring, ribbons of yellow blooms will serve as a permanent recurring
memorial in gardens throughout the five boroughs.

B&K Bulbs, a generous bulb supplier in Holland, is donating half a million
daffodils to New York City - once known as New Amsterdam. 
Thousands of crates will arrive by ship in mid-October. Planting will begin
on Saturday, October 20 and will culminate during Veterans 
Day weekend (November 11). 

The bulbs will be planted in parks, along highways, in community gardens, in
front of
firehouses, police stations, libraries and schools. The event will help
revitalize the spirits
of New York and show to the world that we are still a vibrant, magnificent
city.

Many thanks to Parks Commissioner, Henry Stern, and to Lynden Miller,
trustee of The Parks Council, the Central Park Conservancy and the New 
York Botanical Gardens, for making this event a reality. 
 


GET INVOLVED!

1.	WHERE the daffodils will be planted
2.	HOW you and your group can get involved
3.	And WHO to contact
