Front Yard Program 2022
The Front Yard Recognition Campaign begins June 18 and runs to July 11, 2022.
We are in a stage of rebuilding and reconnecting and what better way than by chatting with our neighbour(s) while admiring the views on our street. Whether it’s the fragrance of spring blossoms on the trees, the textured leaves of the shrubs, or the sight of a greenhouse ablaze with colour, the efforts of nature and nurture, can be enjoyed by all.
Well kept properties and beautiful surroundings makes our community more welcoming to friends, families, clients, and visitors. It generates a civic pride that positively impacts us, our street…our community. The opportunity to identify beautiful yards in our neighbourhoods of Sherwood Park and on some occasions chat with each other, exemplifies our motto, people, plants and pride, growing together… cultivating community!
As we wish to recognize each neighbourhood in our community equally, despite demographics, yard size or plant maturity, this year we will ask our volunteer area captains to identify what they believe to be a feature yard in their mapped area. Each of those 10 highlighted yards will win a $100 gift certificate from one of our sponsors, Salisbury Greenhouse, or Home Hardware Building Centre.
We encourage you to nominate your neighbour, whether it’s their well-kept yard, or it’s your neighbourhood business with potted plants or hanging baskets as their welcome, let them know you appreciate their efforts. Our volunteers will be placing signs in nominee’s front yards and stickers on the windows or doors of businesses who have made an effort to beautify our community. Nominate them!
