    ENHANCING GREEN SPACES IN COMMUNITIES

    COMMUNITIES IN BLOOM IS ALL ABOUT GREENING
    THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL, NATURAL HERITAGE CONSERVATION
    AND HORTICULTURAL ACTIONS
    THAT INVOLVE CITIZENS, BUSINESSES, INSTITUTIONS, AND MUNICIPALITIES.

    The program is focused on environmental stewardship
    through enhancement of green spaces

    “The Communities In Bloom evaluation is a very useful educational tool for the City of Charlottetown when it comes to working to improve the quality of life for its residents. Charlottetown’s participation in the Communities In Bloom program assists the City in its vision to bring together the community to build a better sustainable future for its residents. The evaluation grid provides us with the framework of tangible goals and actions to strive toward by identifying how we can contribute to balancing the interests of the economy and the environment. Charlottetown has seen major growth in our tourism industry over the past ten years or so and our efforts in beautification and sustainability have played a major role in this success. The pride of our community is shown through its citizens”

    – Mayor Clifford Lee – City of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

    “Communities in Bloom has been a wonderful experience for Castlecaulfield Horticultural Society and everyone in the village.  This was our first experience in Communities in Bloom and we enjoyed every minute of it. This was Bloom at a different level and our volunteers rose to the challenge, from our floral displays to our bio diverse forest, our wildflower meadow and community garden, all aspects of our village were lovingly prepared and were judged worthy winners.  We are delighted!”

    – Bernie Mc Kenna – Co Chairperson Castlecaulfield Horticultural Society, Northern Ireland, United Kingdom
