DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

UnityPoint Health Finley is launching a new program called, "Adopt-a-Plot".

The program will allow people, either as individuals, groups or families, to design and maintain four flower plots on Finley's campus.

Volunteers who are interested in the program are asked to submit a design, including a list of flowers and plants that will be included in the plot. They'll plant the various flowers and plants, purchased by Finley, and provide the weekly maintenance of weeding and pruning. Finley Hospital will handle all the watering for the plots.

Each plot will have a sign to show visitors, patients and other community members who has adopted and maintains a particular plot.

The Adopt-a-Plot program supports the hospital's exterior healing environment for patients and families and showcases community members planting skills. Adopt-a-Plot is an ideal service project for clubs, organizations or families.

If interested in Adopt-a-Plot, contact Finley Volunteer Services at 563-589-2643.
