We did it! On Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 10AM – 1PM, Bogota Beautiful successfully completed the Blooming Bogota project by installing eight street planters with soil and flowers on W. Main Street! Check out the results for yourself and we hope you will enjoy the beautiful addition to our town:
Thank you especially to the wonderful sponsors and volunteers who contributed so generously whether through ideas, time, money, and action. There are too many to list here, but to name a few :
Businesses Lukas Italian Cuisine, Santa Fe Wine & Liquor, Riverside Development, Terracast, Isa Pops, and Mangiamos; Bogota Mayors Pat McHale and Tito Jackson; Councilmen Rob Robbins, Evaristo Burdiez, and Chris Kelemen; Borough Administrator Chip Greiner; Environmental Commissioner Daniele Fede; PTO President Eileen Lewis; Garden Club’s Cornelia Geraghty; and the various Bogota Beautiful Members including Joe Gallagher, Johnny Delahoz, Lissette Bustamante, Donors, and Volunteers. Really, thank you so much! There are more pictures to come and we look forward to new improvement and beautification projects.
Unfortunately, the 5/24 Blooming Bogota planting event is canceled due to delayed delivery of the street planters. As such, please expect to receive a cancellation notice via our e-mail system. We will coordinate a new event date and send out an announcement as soon as possible.
Bogota Beautiful apologizes for the inconvenience this causes all involved, especially the volunteers who planned their day around this event. We will strive to do a better job of having all of our bases covered going forward in order to avoid this kind of situation when possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
– The Bogota Beautiful team

“A community project to plant along Main Street and Palisades Avenue in Bogota, NJ to promote community health and inspire many.
My plan is to have 8 large planters along Main Street and Palisades Avenue, hanging baskets from the light posts and all filled with healthy soil and colorful flowers and shrubs. Each large planter runs over $1,000.
This community project had no budget to start however with all your contributions we are creating something incredible for the town of Bogota, NJ, the residents and visitors.
Thank you for your contributions towards the possibility I believe in!
A special thank you to Bogota Beautiful for supporting this project!”
