Becoming a Flower Gardener
Flower gardens in Madison Parks are designed, planted, and maintained by volunteers every year. If you are interested in starting a new garden or want to purchase flowers for a current garden in Madison Parks, please complete the online Flower Garden Proposal by April 25, 2014.
Flower Gardeners will be expected to submit photos and volunteer hour logs of the completed gardens at the end of the season.
2014 Flower Gardener Process
Madison Parks has a small fund that helps to purchase flowers and plant materials for flower gardens in our parks each spring. Please note all plant materials purchased must only be used in the designated City of Madison Park. Volunteers place their orders with the Parks Division and then plants are usually available for pick up in mid-May.
Submit your online Flower Garden proposal by April 25, 2014.

Mulch Madison Parks will still be able to provide free mulch for Volunteer Flower Gardens in our Parks. Mulch requests should be included in the flower garden proposal. It is usually delivered in full truck loads, rather than small amounts.
Volunteers: Just a reminder: if you have additional volunteers assisting you with your flower garden, please have them fill our general on-line Flower Garden Volunteer form. We are trying to update our volunteer database with all current volunteers.
