Livingston Manor Renaissance has been in existence since 2001 when Sullivan Renaissance was formed. Over the years, many, many people have volunteered and worked hard to create a more beautiful and welcoming community. Our current group builds on the achievements of all those individuals - ranging from young children to senior citizens. Some of the projects taken on over the years include new sidewalks and street lamps, history panels and kiosks, native plant gardens, cherry trees, hanging baskets, planters and garden beds.
We have a core group of ten volunteers. On Clean Sweep and Planting Day we are joined by many school and community volunteers. Throughout the summer there are weekly work bees and we are often joined by others who can donate an hour or two of their time. This year we had more than 80 individuals who put in over 800 hours maintaining the gardens in Livingston Manor.
“Renaissance Fever” has truly taken hold in Livingston Manor and we are gratified with how the community continues
to join with us in our
Mandevilla and Scarecrows and….
All summer the mandevilla planted along
the Hoos fence are an explosion of pink “flower power.” In the fall, scarecrows made by local businesses congregate at the fence.
Look around town and you will see items created by Maria, owner of Life Repurposed.
It may be flowers made from dishes and
old garden hose or dragonflies made
from fan blades, table legs and a
“little bit of this and a little bit of that.”
