Green, OH (March 22, 2019) – The City of Green seeks volunteer groups for our 2019 Adopt-A-Spot program, a beautification project in Green city parks. In 2018, our inaugural year for the Adopt-A-Spot Program, volunteer groups serve as Adopt-A-Spot Stewards to plant and care of flowers in multiple locations throughout our Green parks.
Local community groups, families and residents are encouraged to become Adopt-A-Spot Stewards to plant and care for flowers in select park areas. There are more than 30 safe, minimal traffic, family-friendly sites within our City parks available for “adoption” in 2019.
The program is simple – each Adopt-A-Spot Steward would be responsible to plant flowers in their spot the first week of June. All flowers and materials will be provided by the City of Green. Then throughout the summer, the stewards are responsible for weeding, watering and caring for their adopt-a-spot.
“We were thrilled with the success last year and are pleased that so many of our 2018 groups are ready to sign-up again,” said Valerie Wax Carr, service director. “We’ve added a few more spots to the program and encourage families, neighbors and community groups to join together to adopt-a-spot.”
Sites are available at seven City of Green parks. Signs identifying the adopt-a-spot and the organization or family serving as the Adopt-A-Spot Stewards will be placed at each site. Sites will be offered on a first-come, first served basis. Learn more or sign up at www.cityofgreen.org/adopt-a-spot. Registration open until May 1, 2019.
If you are interested or have questions about participating, please contact the Director of Public Service office at 330-896-4176 or visit the City of Green website at www.cityofgreen.org/adopt-a-spot.
