Holiday Greening of Historic New Castle
Every year, dozens of Arasapha members and other volunteers participate in a beloved decades-old New Castle tradition: decorating over 100 all-natural wreaths that adorn the Historic District's public buildings and businesses during the holiday season.
The wreaths, decorated with dried flowers and fresh fruits, vegetables, and greens, contribute to the Historic District's charming holiday atmosphere enjoyed by visitors and residents alike.
You don't need to be a member of Arasapha or have any experience to join the fun! We'll teach you what to do. If you like, for a modest fee you can create a beautiful wreath for your own home. Click here to request more information.
Arasapha's annual Holiday Greening project is supported by grants from the Trustees of New Castle Common and the City of New Castle, along with proceeds from A Day in Old New Castle.
On the Wednesday and Thursday after Thanksgiving, we used dried flowers and fresh fruit, vegetables, and greens to decorate all-natural holiday wreaths.
