Alton looking for volunteer gardeners in Downtown business district

Volunteers at the garden project along State Street in Alton.

Alton Main Street hopes to add more volunteers this year to its monthly downtown gardening project.

In collaboration with the Alton Service League, the group meets downtown to plant, weed, water, and maintain the beautiful flower beds around the Third Street/State/Belle area. Gardening volunteers range in experience and all are welcome.

Alton Main Street board member Emily Keener said, “We have a great group of gardening volunteers – this is a wonderful crew to join. We have plenty to do, but we make sure to have equal parts fun. This is a project where we could always use a few more helping hands, so we’re hoping to recruit additional volunteers as the flowers begin to bloom.”
