About the Program
Behind the scenes of our world-renowned vacation destination, a dedicated group of residents and volunteers work together to support the objectives and values of the Communities in Bloom program, promoting involvement and action by citizens of all ages, municipal government, local organizations and businesses.
The program strives to improve the tidiness, appearance and visual appeal of neighbourhoods, parks, open spaces, and streets through the imaginative use of flowers, plants, and trees. A focus on environmental awareness and preservation of heritage and culture is also embedded in the program, resulting in improved quality of life for participating communities.
Do you have an idea for a project or initiative that would support the Communities in Bloom mandate? Contact Committee Co-Chair Colleen Green by email.
