Spring is near, and the Plaza District is gearing up for a beautiful season. Help the Plaza District Association “Plant the Plaza” by volunteering your time or your dollars to our spring beautification!
We need volunteers for Saturday, April 30th from 9am-1pm (2 shifts available). We will be planting, weeding and cleaning the district! Additionally, we are looking to raise funds to purchase needed materials for the event, such as soil, mulch, landscape materials and volunteer supplies.

We are thrilled our Plant the Plaza sponsor, RED DIRT PLANTS will be providing plants for our district! RED DIRT PLANTS/Guthrie Greenhouses has been a primary grower and distributor of annuals, perennials, vegetables and groundcovers since 1892. Utilizing eight acres of greenhouses and five acres of outdoor growing space, they supply top-quality plants to garden centers, farm stores and hardware stores in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas. All plants are grown locally, nurtured by resident horticulturists and accustomed to midwestern weather. By limiting the states they ship to, they’re able to deliver delicate spring and fall crops at the peak of health, freshness and consumer demand.
Plaza District is proud to partner with such a locally focused, Oklahoma owned and operated company for this event, a true testament to our philosophy of “Keeping It Local” in Oklahoma!
The Plaza District Association is moving offices into a renovated 2nd story space in the middle of the Plaza District. We are seeing if there might be anyone interested in sharing this open office space. For more details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
