Community Flowerbed Planting

Through the efforts of volunteers, SIB supports the flowers in approximately 20 flowerbeds in Sherwood Park and 12 rural halls. with the financial support of Strathcona County, our volunteers select and purchase the flowers for the beds in late May. Volunteers plant the beds in late May/early June and then provide weekly weeding of the beds throughout the summer. Strathcona County employees periodically water the beds. Finally, in late September, volunteers clean up the beds and County employees take away the plant material for composting.

Volunteer Roles

The Volunteer Coordinator oversees all the teams and their work to plant and maintain the bed. They work with the Rural Hall Coordinator who oversees that component of this program.

Community Flower Bed planters work in teams of 3-4 people with a team for each bed.
