It's planting and weeding day!
Perennial garden on the corner of Main and Pearl Streets,
designed by Eustacia Marsales and Paul Blanton.
Planting one flower CAN
start a beautification revolution!
We spend over $5,000 each year on maintenance and upkeep of the gardens. This includes $2,000 for the purchase of flowers. The annual raffle is our main source of income for buying the flowers each year. We need your support to keep our town looking beautiful. Thank you to all who purchase raffle tickets and supported LM Renaissance!
Tickets $50.00 each

7th Annual Livingston Manor Renaissance Raffle
will be held on Sunday, October 29, 2017
at The Arnold House from 3-5 pm
Monetary prizes will be $1000; $500; $250 and $100
Each year, one of our volunteers (who has completed the Master Gardener Volunteer training) creates a flower plan for Main Street.
She “does the math” and calculates how many flowers are needed to fill
40 baskets, 29 cedar planter boxes, 13 window boxes, 5 raised beds, and 7 garden corners. She chooses flowers carefully, taking into consideration the mature size, sustainability,and color impact of the flowers.
2016 SHOWING OF FLOWERS RENAISSANCE AWARD MAINTENANCE JUDGES CHOICE AWARD
In 2016, Livingston Manor won the top award in the
Maintenance category - the Showing of Flowers Award.
The colorful flowers on Main Street really wowed the judges.
In 2014, Livingston Manor won a Maintenance Judges’
Choice Award for having consistently well-maintained gardens. The award noted, "In recognition of your community’s outstanding work and beautification.
Thank you for enhancing the appearance of
Sullivan County while building a sense of
pride and community spirit."
2013 GOLDEN FEATHER AWARD
Livingston Manor was picture-perfect in 2013 and it has the prize to prove it. The hamlet netted Sullivan Renaissance’s coveted Golden Feather Award for 2013, the county-wide beautification initiative’s top honor which comes with
a $25,000 victory purse.
What can the "Golden Feather" be used for?
The Golden Feather was designed to provide the winning community an opportunity to invest in a capital project the community wouldn't otherwise be able to afford, as part of its long-term vision.
As a general guideline, any assets purchased with the Golden Feather should have a useful life of at least seven years.
The Golden Feather Award was used to purchase a storage building to store the planters, benches, watering carts, etc. for the winter. The six trash receptacles were replaced and four new ones were purchased and placed on upper Main Street.
