People, Plants and Pride....Growing Together.
Communities in Bloom is an exciting program of environmental awareness and municipal beautification. It is an initiative designed to involve whole communities in the challenge of improving the visual appeal of Canada's cities, town and villages and to compete for provincial and national awards. Municipalities are judged on the accomplishments of their whole community with regard to quality of the municipality's green spaces, the diversity and originality of its landscaping, general tidiness, environmental awareness, heritage conservation, urban forestry development, floral displays and the level of community involvement.
Participation, pride and a growing sense of community are all positive benefits for municipalities and residents.
Increased environmental health and urban beautification represent valuable assets to a thriving municipality.
