What is the Bloom Kit Program? A volunteer or several volunteers can participate in the Bloom Kit Program. These volunteer(s) complete landscaping tasks in a North Charleston public garden for a minimum of twice per month.
Why should you volunteer? The gardens in North Charleston improve the quality of life for our residents, are educational, and are a sanctuary to local wildlife. Many visitors, both human and wildlife, enjoy visiting the gardens.
What do Bloom Kit volunteer sponsors receive for their service? Volunteer(s) will receive training on proper gardening techniques along with all of the supplies that are necessary to complete gardening tasks in the garden. Volunteer(s) are eligible for contests, prizes, and other awards that are offered through KNCB. Most importantly, Bloom Kit volunteer(s) make our community more beautiful.
PLEASE NOTE: KNCB staff are not on-site for Bloom Kit activities that are completed independently, and as such, staff cannot verify or sign off on volunteer or community service hours completed during these independent cleanups.
