Did you know that we are in the Guinness Book of World Records?
The Marigolds Project celebrated its 16th year 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.

A look back : Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
25 years makes for quite a few memorable moments! One of many of these was in 2012, when Prince Charles and Camilla got a crash course on how to plant marigolds while on the Royal Tour at the Marco Polo Cruise Ship Terminal, Saint John, NB.

June 2023, the Marigold and Murals Project will be celebrating our 25th anniversary
Over 25 years, we’ve planted a lot of marigolds!
For instance, our 2018 Plant Day had over 7,000 students from 50 schools gather to plant 140,000+ marigolds in 55 locations between Sussex and St. Stephen.
That was quite a day!
