The Black Mountain Beautification Committee is now accepting applications for the 2023 Seed Money Award.
This award(s) will be given to an applicant or applicants who submit a gardening project that best exemplifies the mission of the Beautification Committee: honoring the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains while seeking to reflect that beauty on the streets and in the lives of the citizens.
The focus of the project must be gardening-related within Black Mountain and adding a little something extra to our town. Gardening-related can have a broad interpretation. We encourage you to use your imagination!
Applications are available:
On our website
Black Mountain Library
Black Mountain Visitors’ Center (Chamber of Commerce)
Black Mountain Beautification Committee Facebook page
The deadline for this application is March 13, 2023. The award will not exceed $2500. Generally, the total award amount is divided between several applications/projects.
Proceeds for this award were raised at the Black Mountain Garden Show and Sale. If you have questions, feel free to contact Jean Chamberlain (614-203-9241).
The Center will be creating a rock and ornamental fence and adding a new raised bed. Children that attend the Center will help with the planting and maintenance of the bed.
The Unitarian Congregation, in partnership with Eagle Scouts, will install a Little Free Library/Pantry with a garden surrounding it in front of the church. The Congregation will also be replanting a garden on both sides of the church’s welcome sign.
The Black Mountain Arts’ Center will be adding colorful planters to the rear exterior of the building and also planting a small shade garden under the stairwell.
The Lakeview Center will revamp the large three-tiered planter adjacent to the center and facing Lake Tomahawk. The planter will contain mass plantings that will provide color and interest throughout the growing season.
