Northside Fundraiser for Backesto Fountain

On 13th Street, between Empire and Jackson Streets, you will see a charming fountain that needs a lot of TLC. The Backesto fountain will turn 100 years old in 2020!

We are planning our second annual Plant Sale to help support this project at our neighborhood park.

We ask our neighbors and friends to donate seeds, seedlings, plants and and cuttings that we can sell on April 26, 2010 (Location TBA). For more information on what to donate, please check out our FAQ at this link.

In 2019 we raised $954 for the fountain restoration!
