Calling all green thumbs: Springs in Bloom volunteers needed
Monday, February 13, 2012

The City of Colorado Springs is seeking volunteers to adopt a flower bed and help keep the City blooming this summer. The 2012Springs in Bloom flower bed adoption program seeks individuals, families, clubs and businesses to adopt approximately 58 flower beds located throughout Colorado Springs. The Colorado Springs Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department will provide the flowers free of charge to all volunteer adopter groups. Flowerbed adopters will take responsibility for planting and maintaining the beds throughout the summer, per guidelines provided by the City.

Thirty-five percent of the flower beds are already adopted, and flower beds are available on a first come, first serve basis. The City hopes to have sponsors for all beds by April 3, because prime planting season is May 15 thru June 4.

If you are interested in adopting a flowerbed or making a donation to the Springs in Bloom program, go to  For more information, contact Donna Sanchez at (719) 385-6568
