Enchanted Mountain Garden Club of Allegany is an all-volunteer, Not for Profit corporation formed for the purpose of encouraging civic interest in the beautification of the village and town of Allegany, New York.
Our mission includes designing, planting, and maintaining flowers in planters & subways. In addition, we strive to form connections with local businesses and our town and village boards to help create a walkable community and a sustainable business section.
With support of our donors, we have been able to accomplish so much, including:
-Plan tree plantings and park bench memorials in the area of the Allegany River Park Boat Launch
-Contribute to the lighting of the Allegany Library
-Help purchase tables and chairs for local restaurants to allow outside dining during Covid
-Host our 5th Garden Festival, in 2022, featuring a variety of unique local vendors and hosting over 500 attendees
-Present our second annual Scarecrow Row, including 37 community created decorations displayed throughout the village
-Assist in transporting flower arrangements from Canticle Farm to our local Hospice
-Reinvigorate and add plantings to enhance the Veterans' monument at Town Hall, with help from the family of our Town Clerk and from Stayer's Greenhouse, and with financial support from the Charles Harbell Post of the American Legion. The club will continue to maintain the site to honor our fallen heroes
-Initiate a free seed library within the Allegany Library
-Continue work with the BonaGany organization, getting their help to winterize our plantings and clean up along Main Street
-Host gardening-related educational programs which are open to the community
-Welcome all to join us in our ongoing efforts to improve and beautify our area
Going forward, with help from donors, we hope to expand our work by realizing these dreamscape goals:
-Adding spring blooming bulbs and native & pollinator-friendly plantings to the Boat Launch area and at one of our local intersections
-Collaborating to further enhance the Boat Launch area, with potential for a dog park
-Purchasing and installing a dog waste handling station on Main Street
-Sponsoring a mural on a local business exterior wall
-Continuing community music events
-Contributing to lights in the trees of the village
