Communities in Bloom in Forestburg
Forestburg has been involved in some capacity with Communities in Bloom since 1998. Success in the program came early with Forestburg winning the NATIONAL COMMUNITIES IN BLOOM CHAMPIONSHIP the next year. However, the real success has been the way the community consistently shows its spirit by establishing attractive private and public spaces that are a pleasure to live in year round.
In the past few years Forestburg has participated in the Non-Competitive - Mentoring category of the Communities in Bloom Program. There are eight criteria for the program - tidiness, environmental effort, community involvement, heritage, urban forestry, landscaped areas, floral arrangements and turf areas. The local committee, in cooperation with the municipality, the agriculture society and the community at large, strives to maintain high standards in all of these areas.
WORK BEES - Monday evenings at 6:30pm
