CiB Communities are proud to be ‘in Bloom’
From coastal tourist hotspots through to wide-open interior and forested northern towns, the Communities in Bloom program provides a measurement of a community’s desirability as a place to live, work and visit.
Participants showcase their hometown’s best features from street tidiness and floral displays to unique heritage and environmental treasures.
BC’s CiB participants are proud geographical links to the Gardens British Columbia Member Network.
