The Daffodil Dash is a joint project of the Ithaca Garden Club and Ithaca Children’s Garden. Every dollar raised will go toward yet more daffodils to be planted next fall by the City of Ithaca and volunteers from Cornell University, with the help of an extraordinary bulb-planting machine from Cornell! This is part of the Ithaca Garden Club’s Daff-a-Dazzle campaign a multi-year effort to plant daffodils throughout the community.
