Planting Pride: Lompoc Valley

Lompoc Valley, a city in California that competed and won the America In Bloom competition last year, recently painted a mural honoring 100 years of the local flower seed industry in the city. The mural was completed in January and 200 volunteers from the area participated in painting it.

"All ages showed up to add their personal touch - from local high school students to business and community leaders, as well as employed and retired senior citizens," says Dennis Headrick, executive assistant for the Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau. The festivities also included musical entertainment and food for the volunteer participants."
