Kalamazoo in Bloom

End of Season Plant Pull 2021

It's time for the flower beds, containers, and topiaries to get pulled in Portage (October 2) and downtown Kalamazoo (October 4 & 5). There is a lot of work to do but a reward for helping us is that you'll have an opportunity to take plants home. Items to bring, if you have them, are a big shovel, pruning saw, gloves, water bottle, and bags/buckets/containers to take plants with you.

New this year is a Pull Leader volunteer position on October 4. Since CJ can't be at every bed instructing us what to pull/not pull, we need current/former Master Gardeners to help with this, particularly those who are no longer able to participate in the physical nature of this work. 

Start time each day is 9:00 am and we will end around Noon so come join us when you can. Thanks, in advance, for your help!

Plant Pull Leader (5)

CJ can't be everywhere so we're looking for current/former Master Gardeners with plant identification knowledge to keep an eye on plants that should not get pulled. Ideal opportunity for volunteers who are doing less physical work these days.
