The Vermont Flower Show is quite unique from other flower shows in the country. Our members and associates build a 10,000 square foot landscaped display (equal to about an acre) with a new theme each show. A committee works on the design and we receive hundreds of donations of plants, time, materials and labor. A group of volunteers then comes together for 3.5 days to build this display – quite a feat if you watch our time-lapse video: https://greenworksvermont.org/vermont-flower-show/.
