MARLBOROUGH – Calling all gardeners – the Adopt-A-Space program is back.

The program engages community support to assist in the beautification of landscaped areas, traffic islands and other green spaces owned by the city of Marlborough. When you claim your Adopt-A-Space location, you get to create the perfect landscape to fit your vision of how to keep our city beautiful. 

Any company, organization or person who wishes to Adopt-A-Space in the city will be required to maintain the adopted area for the spring, summer and fall seasons. This will include spring and fall cleanup, plantings, weeding and watering. 

The city will provide a sign with your company name or organization at your adopted area indicating that you have adopted that space. 

If you were not gifted with a green thumb but would still like to participate in the beautification of Marlborough, there’s a program for you too – Adopt-A-Planter.

Adopt-A-Planter allows you to pick a planter location and signature plant, but the city will do all the work for only $100 per planter. The city will plant, weed, water and continue to care for your planter throughout the seasons. The company name or organization sign will be added to the planter, letting everyone know you have adopted it and played a big part in keeping the city beautiful. 

The city is looking for committed sponsors who will enjoy adding to the ambience of the city and who will keep their Adopt-A-Space in tip-top shape, or sponsors to Adopt-A-Planter.

Payment may be made to the City of Marlborough and note Adopt-a-Planter program. 

Limited space and planters are available, so claim yours before they fill up. 

Interested residents should contact Dominic Goncalves at the Department of Public Works at 508-624-6910, ext. 1, by email [email protected], or the mayor’s office at 508-460-3770.
