Communities in Bloom is a volunteer based, Canadian non-profit organization, committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility, beautification and to improving quality of life through community participation and the opportunity to participate in a national program.
The Alberta Recreation and Parks Association oversees the Alberta's Provincial Edition of the Communities in Bloom initiative.
The Annual Communities in Bloom Alberta Fall Workshop & Provincial Awards Luncheon is Saturday, September 21st. The workshop is open to anyone interested in beautification in their community or for their own yard. There is no requirement that people attending are part of a CiB program. If a community is thinking about participating in CiB or is wanting to generate some enthusiasm in their community for entering, this workshop is a great way to introduce people to the program.
Good reasons to attend:
- Meet people who are participating in CiB in their own communities and experience their enthusiasm for the program's benefits
- Take home fresh ideas to use in your community
- For people who have not considered being part of CiB, this could be the spark that gets the idea rolling
- Learn good gardening tips. There is horticultural information of interest to any gardener, even if not thinking about being part of the CiB program
