Collaboration is Key

Want to know what makes this so much fun? The people! The Flower Show Committee and Central Display Committee are a group of hard-working people who began the planning process 18 months ago. They have given tirelessly of their time and labor to ensure the show comes together in a few short days! Wow!

UVM Master Gardeners

Every show we ask master gardeners who participate in the UVM Master Gardener Program across the state if they are interested in volunteering their time to help with the Vermont Flower Show. The tasks are many and so are the master gardeners who come forward each show! Over the course of the week almost 100 master gardener volunteers help Green Works with this endeavor! We gratefully accept their help and could not do it without them.

Green Works Members and Vermont Certified Horticulturists

Holding a flower show was the brainstorm of members back in 1963. Over the years the show has evolved, expanded, and grown into what it is today. That brainstorming by our members still goes on today. Many of our members donate their professional time and expertise to design and build the show. Others donate plants and materials. Vermont Flower Show would never be able to happen without our members continued efforts and dedication to bringing this show to life every other year.

Green Works members and Vermont Certified Horticulturists are on hand at the Green Works information booth to answer questions. Please check out the Design Board to learn about this year’s sponsors of the show and the featured contributors.
