What We Do

Friends of Old Westbury Inc, founded in April 2017, is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to enhancing our public spaces by planting flowers trees and shrubs,  and helping to create a unified aesthetic in our Village.

While we work in close cooperation with Village officials, we are resident volunteers, not part of local government. Your donations pay for improvements that are beyond the scope of the Village budget and beautify without raising our taxes. Our goal is a greener, healthier and more beautiful Old Westbury by planting, pruning and improving our common areas.

Following the model of beautification groups all over the Island and the nation, we formed a 501c3 not for profit foundation which enables all of us to make tax-deductible donations each year so we can all pitch in and beautify the place we call home.

Planning and Planting

Inspired landscaping, beautifying and planting will enhance our everyday views  but even more importantly, trees and other plants clean the air we breathe. Their root systems collect contaminants in our water. The more we plant, the more pollution they absorb. They make our streets quieter and surround us in serene beauty.

Many of our private properties are bursting with color and impeccably maintained. Old Westbury is beautiful. But we can do better. We believe it is up to those of us who live here to protect, plant  and improve – and leave a legacy for those who will come after us.

Join this Community Effort

To our founding donors, we thank for your support and trust. We are making a visible difference with plantings across our Village.  To our other neighbors, we can do so much more planning and planting  with full annual participation. Please join us this community effort with annual support.
