Art Needed For Neighborhood Signs

March 13th, 2012

Nine (9) Neighborhood Identifying Signs, located in Audubon Park, need to be rebranded and refreshed to match our funky flavor.

Entries are open to all two dimensional artists living in Orange and surrounding Counties. The characters “Audubon Park Garden District”, “APGD” or the APGD bird graphic shall appear by itself or in combination within all submittals. A five (5) point system based on overall aesthetics and design will be employed. One (1) point will be deducted if if the above listed is omitted from the submission. One (1) bonus point will be awarded for local artists, i.e, a business within the District boundaries or a resident living within three (3) miles of the intersection of Corrine Dr. and East Winter Park RoadThe judging panel will determine which selected artist paints which cabinet.

Median Planting – Volunteers Needed

November 16th, 2010

Saturday December 4th marks a milestone for the Audubon Park Garden District; they are replanting their first median.

This median will be beautiful and efficient due to the use of Florida native drought tolerant plants chosen by Kariena Veaudry, Executive Director of Native Florida Consulting, Inc., who graciously designed the Audubon Park Median.

APGD needs 10 volunteers from 9am to 12pm to complete this goal. Please contact Kat Quast at 407-590-8776 or to volunteer.
