U. City in Bloom
U City in Bloom is a non-profit with
funding provided by the City of U City, the
U City school district and private donations.
We are committed to maintaining and
further development of the over 325 public
garden locations established over the last
30 years. These gardens are designed,
planted and sustained by a group of
volunteers under a Director of Horticulture,
an assistant horticulturist and part-time
horticulture staff members.
Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer hands are always needed in
our public gardens. No previous expertise
required. Guided by our experienced
Director of Horticulture, you will work with
a dedicated group of volunteers who will
soon become your friends and teachers. For
more information or to volunteer, go to our
website: ucityinbloom.org.
