COLORADO SPRINGS — An annual volunteer program in Colorado Springs encourages local residents, clubs, and businesses to adopt flower beds throughout the city.

The program, called "Springs in Bloom" is in its 16th year. It is managed by the Horticulture and Education Center, located in the City Greenhouse in Monument Valley Park. The greenhouse supplies more than 46,000 plants for the program, the city said.

Approximately 50 flower beds throughout the city are available for adoption.

“We are incredibly thankful to all of the generous individuals, businesses and service organizations who volunteer time to make our city a more beautiful place through Springs in Bloom,” said Donna Sanchez, city horticulturalist. “This is such a great program and a fun way to roll up your sleeves with friends, family or coworkers and give back to the community.”
