City And Garden Club Partner In Adopt-A-Pot

The cold and much-needed rainy weather has brought a few dreary days to Oakdale in this New Year of 2017. But the colorless days of winter are being brightened by the Downtown Oakdale Adopt-A-Pot Project, a partnership involving merchants on F Street between Yosemite Avenue and First Street, the City of Oakdale and the Oakdale Garden Club.

In a joint effort to keep the downtown area in bloom throughout the year, the project involves planting flowers in the planters located on the sidewalk in front of local businesses. The funds for the Adopt-A-Pot program were generously paid by the merchants, while the actual planting of foliage was done by members of the Oakdale Garden Club using plants purchased from Morris Nursery of Riverbank. The City of Oakdale will supply the water for each of the little gardens via a sprinkler system in the pots, and when the current plants outgrow the containers, they will be replaced by others suitable for the next season.

Although about a dozen of the 20-odd planters in the targeted area have had flowers already planted in them, there are several more without completed gardens. These are currently available to any individual or merchant who would like to sponsor one or more of them.
