City of Pickerington

Adopt-A-Flowerbed

Do you have a green thumb?

The Pickerington Parks and Recreation Department encourages public involvement in the enhancement of community parks and facilities.  The Adopt-A-Flowerbed program is a new volunteer based opportunity that allows individuals or groups to "adopt" and maintain designated flowerbed(s) within the City.  Please contact the Parks and Recreation Department for a list of available flowerbeds to choose your preferred location.

The flowerbed should be adopted for one complete growing season (tentatively April-October)

  • Remove and dispose of litter and weeds
  • Provide own hand tools for area maintenance
  • Notify park liaison of problems or concerns
  • Visit the site frequently (suggested bi-weekly) to ensure good health of plant material
  • Install mulch provided by City when needed
  • Pick out and plant approved flowers
  • Cleanup bed at end of season
  • Acknowledge the adoption through signage placed in flower bed and website
  • Provide voucher for flowers to be planted and coordinate mulch delivery
  • Maintenance support as needed for tasks outside of volunteer capabilities

Personalized sign recognition will be placed in each adopted flowerbed.
