Communitues in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program.
The program consists of communities receiving information and being evaluated nationally by volunteer jury and trained professionals on the accomplishments of their entire community (municipal, private, corporate, and institutional sectors, citizens).
Communities in Bloom is more than just flowers! It's a volunteer committee that works to improve our community by concentrating on improving Tidiness, Environmental Awareness, Community Involvement, Tree/Urban Forestry, Landscaped Areas, Floral Displays and Turf & Ground Cover.
