The Vermont Flower Show is quite unique from other flower shows in the country. Our members and associates build a 10,000 square foot landscaped display (equal to about an acre) with a new theme each show. A committee works on the design and we receive hundreds of donations of plants, time, materials and labor. A group of volunteers then comes together for 3.5 days to build this display - quite a feat if you watch our time-lapse video: https://greenworksvermont.org/vermont-flower-show/.
The Vermont Flower Show is produced by the Vermont Nursery & Landscape Association (VNLA/Green Works), a non-profit statewide organization, dedicated to educating and increasing awareness of the growing industry of horticulture (wholesale and retail nurseries, greenhouses, retail garden centers and florists, designers, landscape and tree services). The VNLA Board and Flower Show Committees work thousands of hours in creating a vibrant and colorful community-wide event that educates, entertains, and inspires.
