Volunteer Opportunities

Community involvement is needed to plant and maintain flowerbeds throughout Kalamazoo County.  Through our many partnerships, over 200 volunteers of all ages help us carry out this mission.  All volunteers receive a Kalamazoo in Bloom t-shirt for their help.

The following are opportunities to get involved and help our community thrive with beauty:

Bronson Park Planting Day Bed Supervisor is responsible for overseeing the planting of a bed to ensure it is planted according to the design of it's ZOO theme.  Click here for a description of responsibilities.

Adopt a bed in Bronson Park and commit to care for it during the summer.  Your name will appear on a flowerbed sign indicating you as the bed adopter.

Adopt Library Lane in Portage.  This is a great opportunity for individuals or groups to regularly care for the beds around Library Lane and in front of City Hall throughout the summer.  Adopters' names will appear on a flowerbed sign. 

Volunteer on planting days.  Flowers are planted in Portage on the 3rd Friday of May from 9am-noon.  Flowers are planted in Bronson Park the Thursday before Memorial Day from 9am-noon.  Pizza and beverages are served at noon.
