In 2016, Mayor Bernero brought back the city's "Neighborhoods in Bloom" program after being discontinued a decade before. Through this program, flowers and planting supplies are given to neighborhood associations interested in beautifying public spaces around Lansing.
“I am so excited to bring back this important program,” said Mayor Bernero. “Neighborhoods In Bloom is a wonderful way for neighbors to roll up their sleeves and work side-by-side to enhance our community and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods across the city.”
30 volunteers worked a total 90 volunteer hours valued at $2,070
41 neighborhood groups participated
8,160 square feet of flowers planted in Lansing
11,560 flowers given to neighbors
Check back in early spring of 2018 for application and details
Thank you to the Greater Lansing Association of Realtors, Team Depot, and the Allen Neighborhood Center for providing volunteers, the Allen Neighborhood Center and the Lansing School District for hosting distribution sites, and the Hyacinth House and Wildtype Nursery for providing the flowers!
