Grow Wallace

The Wallace Flower Project

Flowers for the Center of the Universe!

About the Project

Hey there, flower children and cool cats! Welcome to Grow Wallace - the grooviest little flower project this side of the Milky Way!

The Wallace Flower Project, part of the Grow Wallace initiative, aims to spread good vibes and radical colors all summer. Each year we turn the streets of Wallace into a kaleidoscope of hanging baskets that blow our tourists and visitors' minds as they visit the Center of the Universe!

A Totally Hip History

Since 1990, we've been groovin' and growin', now rockin' over 225 baskets. It all started with the visionary Ron Garitone and fab volunteers like Iris Cantamessa. Our tribe of Wallace flower children continues to grow each year. We've been keepin' the faith and keepin' on bloomin' for decades!

Peace, Love and Petals, Man!

Support Our Flower Power Movement

Wallace's Flower Power Revolution!

The Wallace Flower Project thrives on good karma and the support of righteous donors like you. Your contributions keep our flower power strong, especially as other funding sources become as scarce as vintage vinyl.

Every donation helps cover the far-out costs of growing and maintaining our mind-blowing displays. All donations are tax deductible

Donate Today!

Keep Wallace Blooming to the Max!

Whether you're here in our groovy town or vibing from across the cosmos, there's a way for everyone to join our flower power movement! Plant a virtual bloom, honor a loved one, or go all out and sponsor a stellar basket. Every contribution, no matter how small, helps our garden grow and keeps Wallace blooming beautifully. Choose your level of cosmic involvement below and let's make the universe a more colorful place together!
With just $5, you can help our flower power reach new heights! Support our "Make Wallace a Bloomtown Again" campaign and watch our town transform into a psychedelic paradise. Your 501(c)3 tax-deductible contribution goes straight to creating a floral spectacle that's totally far out!

Volunteer Opportunities

Our Annual Woodstock

Our dedicated flower children get together every year for the ultimate planting party. From pickin' the most psychedelic petals to daily TLC, we ensure our floral light show shines brightly from May through the dog days of summer.

Join our Green Thumb Love-In!

We are calling all beautiful people! Come together for our planting happenings at the flower park on the corner of 2nd and Cypress in late May. All ages are welcome - from tiny tots to groovy grandparents!

Thank you to all of our volunteers!!!
