Communities in Bloom is a national and provincial program that recognizes community participation in projects involving beautification, heritage, and environmental awareness. This is a great opportunity for communities to generate civic pride and local participation, while gaining recognition across the country
Participants are judged on the quality of the municipality's green spaces, diversity and originality of its landscaping, general tidiness, environmental awareness, heritage, and the level of community involvement.
Communities in Bloom is a great opportunity to showcase our Town in six key areas:
- Community Appearance
- Environmental Action
- Tree Management
- Plant & Flora Displays
