Programs

The Bellevue Garden Team

The Garden Team works with city staff to keep Bellevue’s public spaces beautiful and blooming. Each season a variety of plants and flowers are designed, placed, and maintained throughout the city. The efforts of the Garden Team truly contributes to the charm and appeal of Bellevue. Click here to learn more about the new Hanging Basket program.

City Decorating

BNA partners with the City of Bellevue to ensure that the city looks festive and bright during the holiday seasons. Decorations and lights are hung along Fairfield Avenue and throughout the neighborhoods within Bellevue. Currently, there is a focus on decorating for the fall and winter.

Community Garden

Begun in 2011 with assistance from the Campbell County Extension Office and the City of Bellevue; the Community Garden is a place for Bellevue residents of all ages and gardening experience to share and gain knowledge on growing and gardening. Located at the end of the alley between the 400 blocks of Foote and Ward Avenues, the Community Garden’s harvest is shared and enjoyed among the gardeners and neighbors of “Blossom Alley”. The Community Garden is worked Thursday evenings at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 10:30am.

Tree Planting

With an understanding that trees add to the allure and value of a community’s neighborhoods; BNA partners with the City of Bellevue’s tree board to replace damaged, dead or diseased trees in our parks and public rights of way. This program not only adds to the aesthetic beauty of Bellevue, but educates our citizens on environmental contributions to a healthy and vibrant urban forest.
