Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful and the Garden Club Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County have announced the winners of the 2020 Annual Flower Bed Program, which beautifies the city through the efforts of volunteers who plant and maintain flower beds in public areas.

  • 2nd Place: Gillian Thomas, bed at Mountain View Road.

This year 27 groups participated in the program and maintained 38 flower beds. Under the program, the city supplies annual flowers to the groups which agree to plant them in beds in public areas that they maintain over the spring and summer. The city helps water the beds and provides mulch. Every year representatives from KWSB and the council inspect the beds during the course of the summer and recognize the best-maintained beds.
