History of Flower Barrel Project
This is where is all started - a community gift from volunteers to brighten up the Main St. back in 2000. Philmont Beautification, Inc. now thanks The Village of Philmont and the DPW for taking on the annual planting of the Main St. barrels providing prominent businesses, govt. offices, and the Post Office located on Maple Avenue with summer annuals. We'd like to thank the many local businesses for helping to establish the planting of the barrels as a local favorite to welcome the start of the season on Memorial Day weekend, including Holmequest Farm, Loomis Creek Nurseries, Claverack Agway, GrowMax, and Meltz Lumber who have generously donated to this program over the years.
