Hope is Growing

Show off nature’s best shades of yellow with a 2021 Hope is Growing garden

Hope is growing in 2021. It’s truly a refreshing theme after a difficult last year. Canadians are ready to start looking up — and that includes gardeners.

That is why Communities in Bloom has embraced “Hope is Growing” as the banner for their 2021 campaign.

What is Communities in Bloom? It is a celebration of urban environmental sustainability across Canada. CIB is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization that partners with municipalities to enhance residential and public spaces.

Since their start in 1995, the goal has been “to enhance the quality of life and the environment through people and plants in order to create community pride.”

The professional trade association Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) acquired Communities in Bloom just over a year ago, providing an opportunity for new ideas, growth and vision.

Among the first endeavours is the Hope is Growing campaign, in partnership with Garden Centres Canada, encouraging Canadians to plant gardens of hope for 2021 and featuring the colour yellow. From coast to coast, the goal is to create front yards, boulevards and playgrounds brimming with yellow flowers, foliage and vegetables.
