About

Do you have an interest in ornamental gardening and beautifying your environment? The City of Orem Department of Public Works would like to invite you to participate in the "Adopt a Spot" program available within your community.

What is "Adopt a Spot"? It is a program where a volunteer assists in caring for a flower bed in the park system.

Who can adopt a spot? Any individual or group may participate.

Why participate? Our mission is to help our fellow citizens build and preserve a community in which we all want to live. Whether you choose to work individually or in a group setting, your efforts are appreciated and will contribute to the beautification of your community.

When is the adoption period? The adoption period is from March through November of each calendar year.

What is the time commitment? It depends on the size of the bed. A minimum of two bed visits per month is all that is required. Many adopters check on their spots while picnicking in the area or while taking a leisurely stroll through the park. You can work at your own pace and choose a schedule that best suits you.

How do I care for my bed? Tasks include planting, weeding, and deadheading flowers. Plant material and training will be provided by Orem parks staff.

What will I get for my efforts? Participants will have their name listed on the "Adopt a Spot" section of the Orem website. Photo submissions from adopters are encouraged. A sign will also be placed in your bed to recognize your efforts.

How much does it cost? Participation is free. The Orem Department of Public Works will provide the plant material and signs for each bed. Donations are always welcome.
