•OIB Named Volunteer of the Year: You can be a participant in one of the city's highly-valued volunteer community efforts. The City of Olivette recognized Olivette in Bloom as Volunteer of the Year in a recent ceremony held at the Olivette City Center. Come and pitch in a few hours once a month on a designated Saturday at one of three Olivette gardens. See pictures/locations above. Check the OIB calendar for Saturday work days.
•OIB Kick-Off Breakfast: Thank you to all new and seasoned volunteers who attended the OIB Kick-Off Breakfast. Breakfast was followed by clean up at the three community gardens. Garden volunteers are always welcome. Mulch and planting: May 11.

In April of 2000, a group of Olivette residents interested in gardening and in their community came together to form Olivette in Bloom (OIB). The group's mission is to promote the natural beauty and harmony in the community of Olivette by designing, planting, and maintaining garden sites in selected public grounds.

Organizational Structure

Olivette in Bloom is a non-profit (501c3) organization. We are registered in the State of Missouri. Our Bylaws delineate the responsibilities of officers.

We design and maintain the gardens, raise the money for plant material through individual donations, buy and install the plants, and maintain the sites during the year. OIB works closely with and appreciates the support of the City of Olivette.
"Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you."
