Rotary Club of Reno Launches Biggest Little Bulb Project

Wish List: White Hot Tulips

I am a proud member of the Rotary Club of Reno. Over the last year our club has partnered with a few organizations to taken on the Sculpture Garden in Bicentennial Park as a fellowship project. We have helped with the Sculpture Garden and with nurturing the gardens around the sculptures.

Now that fall is on the horizon we have one thing on our mind flower bulbs for the garden. Below is the press release I wrote for the project. Unfortunately, we didn’t get much response from our press release because of hurricanes, wild fires, and Burning Man. We will probably send another press release when the news cycle slows down.

Rotary Club of Reno Launches Biggest Little Bulb Project

The Rotary Club of Reno launched the Biggest Little Bulb Project this week to gather donations for 15,000 spring bulb flowers that will be planted this fall in the Sculpture Garden in Bicentennial Park and along Riverside Drive in downtown Reno.

The Sculpture Garden in Bicentennial Park has become a favorite destination for locals and tourists. The Reno Arts and Culture Commission partnered with Rotary Club of Reno to establish the sculpture garden, which features a rotating outdoor exhibition that is a part of Reno’s growing art scene. The park also features beautiful gardens, maintained by Rotarian volunteers, the city and KTMB. Rotarians have been working hard to nurture the garden and are now working on fall planting.

Fall is the best time to plant bulbs in the Reno-Sparks area and the Rotary Club is getting a jump start on donations for the Biggest Little Bulb Project. The bulbs chosen for the garden will bloom in several stages to encourage people to frequently visit the garden. There will be an early bloom, mid-spring bloom, and late spring bloom at the Sculpture Garden.

This project is possible thanks to generous Rotarians, local businesses, and community leaders. The goal is to plant 15,000 bulbs this fall, and donations have already been collected for 8,700 bulbs, but more donations are needed. If you or your business would like to contribute to the Biggest Little Bulb Project please contact Lisa Jansen at LisaJ@OneNevada.org.
