Project Bloom "blossomed" in 1993 as a cooperative effort between the Town of Islip, Cornell Cooperative Extension and Keep Islip Clean.
The result is a wonderful program whereby Master Gardeners from Cornell run the Town of Islip greenhouse in East Islip, providing an array of lessons on gardening to local residents. The fruits of these lessons and the labor by the students and instructors provide KIC volunteers with plants to help beautify our various sites throughout Islip Township.
Please contact KIC today to find out how you can
- Receive plants to beautify your KIC site
- Donate perennial plant materials for division/multiplication
- Help work in the green house
Volunteers should contact the KIC office in early April to in order to receive their plants in May.
