As the marigolds bloom at the various schools, your contribution will be evident in the smiles on the children’s faces on Plant Day and throughout the summer.

In appreciation of your commitment to this project you will be recognized as an event partner/sponsor by featuring your company’s logo on our website and promoted in all of Marigold’s media releases.

In June 2018, The Marigold Project will celebrate its 21st anniversary!

Plant Day 2017 saw over 7,000 students from 50 schools gather to plant over 140,000 marigolds in 55 locations between Sussex and St. Stephen.

Guinness World RecordGuinness Book of World Records


In June 2013, The Marigolds Project celebrated its 16th year of tremendous success by setting the World Record for the number of children planting flowers at the same time!

The Marigolds Project began in 1997 as Marigolds on Main Street. Originally students from four local schools gathered each June to plant marigolds along Main Street in Saint John. Marigolds on Main Street has grown into The Marigolds Project and continues to evolve each year. The Marigold Project has served as a model for similar planting programs nationally and around the world.

In 2013 The Marigolds Project was recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records for the most youth planting flowers at one time.
