Thank you for helping our community Bloom Together!

Bloom Together!  Every gift of $50 or more comes with a packet of Bloom Together Butterfly Mix seeds, provided by Forever Green.  Look inside your seed packet to see if you are one of five winners of a fresh floral arrangement from a local florist.  Winners will also have a shot at winning the Mystery Seed Packet Grand Prize - a bouquet of Iowa City's greatest offerings, valued at $1,000.

Not only did we have a lot of fun, but together, we raised over $50,000 to support local youth and families in the coming year! 

Thank you to everyone who supported UAY by planting seeds, contributing floral art, sharing your talents and helping young people GROW. 🌱

This year's Festival of Flowers was a month long community celebration and fundraising event that included virtual workshops for all ages, a Community Garden Art Exhibit in downtown Iowa City, flowers delivered to over 200 doorsteps, 5 winning tickets hidden inside our Bloom Together Seed Packets and a Grand Prize Winner who was presented with an original painting by Monica Basile and a bouquet of gift cards to some of our favorite places in Iowa City.  

Special Thanks to our 2021 Festival of Flowers Sponsors
