Communities in Bloom 2013
The City of Barrie is proud to participate in the International Challenge Large Category. This is our 16th year participating in Communities in Bloom and with thanks to the efforts of our community we received another five bloom rating in the Circle of Champions category last year. We were also honoured to be presented the Special Award for our City of Barrie Strategic Plan.
To continue with our success, residents with gardens of all sizes are encouraged to participate in this year’s competition. This invitation is also extended to all commercial and industrial businesses. And if your neighbour has a garden that is the envy of the street, don’t forget that you can nominate them for their beautification efforts!
Little gardeners are also encouraged to showcase their green thumbs! The “Little Bloomers” Container Gardening Contest is open for children ranging in age from from 2-5 and 6-10. There will be an opportunity to showcase their unique and colourful efforts during the community luncheon with our visiting judges at Southshore Community Centre (205 Lakeshore Drive) on Wednesday, July 24th at 12:30.
