Communities in Bloom

What is Communities in Bloom? People, plants and pride...growing together.

Armstrong In Bloom

Communities in Bloom volunteers have a bit of fun at the local Farmer’s Market.

Armstrong in Bloom is a volunteer-run initiative to encourage citizens to work together to enhance and sustain the visual appeal of neighbourhoods, public spaces, parks and streetscapes.

Please go to the Communities in Bloom website for more information.

If you wish to volunteer, please contact program liaison Shirley Fowler at 250-546-3732
