Into the ROC Daffodil Planting Event Graphic Information

Join Into the ROC as we help The Daffodil Project plant thousands of daffodil bulbs at Mount Hope Cemetery in Rochester. The Mount Hope Cemetery is where many famous Rochesterians are buried, including Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony. The Daffodil Project has planted more than 20,000 daffodil bulbs throughout the cemetery as a sign of hope and peace. Projects for the day will include planting bulbs, raking leaves, cleaning pathways, and digging holes.

A bus will leave promptly from the Sentinel Statue at 10:30 a.m. Please dress accordingly for working outdoors; closed-toe shoes, a rain jacket, and long pants are highly encouraged. Please bring water and a light snack if you need it! This is not a wheelchair-accessible program.
