Adopt a Highway

DelDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) Program is a partnership between the Department of Transportation and volunteers, working together to beautify our community, two miles at a time. More than just a cleanup campaign, this innovative program works to educate citizens of all ages about the responsibilities of land stewardship-the care and repair of our environment. Ultimately, the AAH Program is about people caring enough to make a difference.

Garden Therapy

Ongoing collaboration with the CHEER Center, Ocean View, DE. The CHEER Center offers a full range of services for mature adults such as healthy mid-day meals, transportation and a variety of activities to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  Coastal Gardeners design and donate flower arrangements to beautify the social area for sponsored events.

Garden Design, Planting and Maintenance

Coastal Gardeners designed, planted and maintained the landscapes in front of Dagsboro Town Hall with support from community partner Inland Bays Garden Center.
