It is time to enjoy the warmth and wonderful plants, flowers and colors of our Nation’s Capital. Many of you have been hard at work on beautifying your front yard, back yard, and tree boxes. Now we invite you to show them off.

Self Guided Garden Walk – 12:00pm – 5:30pm, Saturday, July 11, 2015

Neighborhood Garden Walk – 3:00 – 5:30 p.m, Saturday, July 11, 2015. Take the tour with your neighbors. Tours will start from Florida Avenue Park at 1st St NW, and Florida Ave NW.

Garden Reception – 5:30pm, Saturday, July 11, 2015 at 61 P St NW.  Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at link above or at the reception.

What is Flower Power?
Every year (or so), the Bates Area Civic Association sponsors Flower Power – a neighborhood garden walk ending with a reception. This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and see what others are doing to keep our neighborhood beautiful.

How it works
Neighbors submit their front yard, back yard or tree box(s) to be part of the Garden Walk. The Garden Walk Map and Brochure will be delivered to each house on Friday, July 10, 2015 and posted online.

It is free to participate in the Garden Walk. Tickets for the Reception will be sold for $10. These can be purchased online using button above or at the event. We will also be seeking sponsorships from local businesses. All funds raised for Flower Power will go towards a fall beautification effort.

Entry for Garden Tour
This year we will be asking for entries to be part of the garden tour.
You can submit an entry for:

  • Front Yard
  • Back Yard
  • Tree Boxes

The idea is that we work individually and as a community to make our neighborhood beautiful and in the process we work with and get to know our neighbors. We hope you’ll participate.

    Flower Power is this Saturday! That’s right – you have a few more days to spruce up your yard and/or tree box, or just admire those of your neighbors, and meet some more neighbors! Hope to see you all there. 🙂
