We’re seeking volunteers to help us with planting daffodil bulbs, donated from New Yorkers For Parks, around the Chinatown neighborhood at Chatham Square, the Wedding Garden at Foley Square, and along the Bowery. Please come prepared with clothing you don’t mind getting slightly dirty, and be sure to wear a proper face mask.
About the Daffodil Project
For 20 years, NY4P has worked with over 400,000 New Yorkers to create the largest volunteer effort in NYC. Every spring since 2002, New York City emerges from winter and daffodils burst through soil in parks, playgrounds, and public spaces across the city. These symbols of rebirth are the world’s largest living memorial to the victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Over 8 million daffodil bulbs have been distributed for free, planted by volunteers in the fall and then celebrated as some of the first flowers to bloom come spring.
In 2021, on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and the Daffodil Project, NY4P worked with artist Michael De Feo to create a new logo and look for the project, and thanks to generous sponsors, NY4P is able to double the bulb order to plant hope and bring yellow bursts to NYC in spring 2022.
