Roots and Branches sponsors the Mayor’s Beautification Award each year that recognizes and promotes attractive residential front landscapes. There are eight winners, one from each district in the City of West Bend. Awards are based on the impact a particular landscape has on the surrounding neighborhood rather than the amount of money spent. It is intended to be a “thank you” for the efforts those have made in helping to make West Bend a more beautiful city in which to live, work and visit.
Roots and Branches mission is to improve the environment of the city of West Bend through improving the landscapes. We provide a clean-up campaign in the spring, seminars and other educational programs, Adopt-a-plot gardens around town and downtown, Garden Tour and so much more. In addition to the Mayor’s Beautification Awards, we also sponsor the Business Beautification Award. Roots and Branches is a non-profit organization and receives no tax dollars.
