The Bridge of Flowers is a landmark in Shelburne Falls which draws visitors each year from all over. Once a trolley bridge, the Bridge of Flowers runs across the Deerfield River, next to the Iron Bridge, connecting the towns of Shelburne and Buckland. A group of volunteers from the community, known as the Blossom Brigade, maintain the bridge’s beautiful gardens, so that people can enjoy the spectacular plants and flowers as they walk across the bridge.
This Saturday, May 15th, 2021, support the Bridge of Flowers at the Bridge of Flowers Annual Plant Sale. From 9 am to noon, head over to the Baptist Corner Green in Shelburne Falls to find a variety of perennials, annuals, and other garden related items. Some of the plants have been dug up from the Bridge of Flowers itself! All proceeds will benefit the Bridge of Flowers. Masks and social distancing regulations will be observed.
If you are unable to attend the plant sale but still wish to support the Bridge of Flowers, you can donate online at www.bridgeofflowersmass.org/copy-of-donate.
