Kalamazoo in Bloom
We have an extended planting schedule in Portage and Kalamazoo this year. There are many days to volunteer, and we've added new activities as well.
We encourage you to wear a mask, especially since you may be planting with people you do not know. Feel free to also ask friends and family to join you in planting a bed. Extra volunteers are always welcomed and helpful, but please no young children who need extra supervision.
Planting happens rain or shine so dress appropriately. Bring gloves, trowel & kneeling pad if you have them. On days we add mulch, bring a bucket, wheelbarrow, and snow shovel if you have them. Extra supplies will be on hand.
Feel free to wear a KIB shirt from past seasons. There will be limited new shirts available during the main planting days in Portage (May 19-21) and Kalamazoo (May 26-28).
FOR MASTER GARDENERS: MSU Extension has advised that no Master Gardeners volunteer for any projects until further notice. If you volunteer, we ask that your role be as a "Kalamazoo in Bloom volunteer" instead of as an "MSU Extension Master Gardener".
