Keep North Charleston Beautiful first implemented the Flowerscape Program on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2007, by planting fifty red Knock-Out Roses at the intersection of Rivers Avenue and Ashley Phosphate Road. The goal of the Flowerscape program is to plant colorful gardens in highly traveled locations that will positively impact the North Charleston community.
Currently, there are two Flowerscape locations with areas available for sponsorship, the Park Circle Butterfly Garden and the Northwoods Butterfly Garden. (You can learn more about these gardens by clicking here.)
What is a Flowerscape sponsor? Groups of five or more volunteers make up a Flowerscape group. These volunteers do landscaping tasks in a North Charleston public garden for at least three hours each month.
Why should you volunteer? The gardens in North Charleston improve the quality of life for our residents, are educational, and are a sanctuary to local wildlife. Many visitors both human and wildlife enjoy visiting the garden.
What do Flowerscape sponsors receive for their service? Each group gets their name on an attractive sign that is located in a visible area of the garden. Additionally, the names of our sponsors are listed on our social media outlets to include the KNCB webpage, Facebook, and Instagram. Flowerscape groups are eligible for contests, prizes, and other awards. These awards are designed to recognize outstanding efforts by Flowerscape groups. Most importantly Flowerscape volunteers make our community more beautiful!
