Upcycled Planter Challenge – July 2-13, 2021 – Windsor, CT

The Windsor Monarch Project committee and First Town Downtown encourage you to visit Windsor Center from July 2-13, where thirty-five upcycled planters will be on display at various sponsor business locations and on the Windsor Town Green.

Designers, artisans, and local gardening enthusiasts have crafted these butterfly friendly planters from a variety of unusual items. The Upcycled Planter Challenge coincides with the Windsor Garden Tour (July 10), a pop-up market at James Selig Estate Jewelry & Antiques (July 10), a paint night with Irene’s Traveling Paint Parties (July 10), and many other sponsor specials and promotions.
