North Grenville in Bloom

North Grenville in Bloom

Information about Communities in Bloom 2024 TBA!

The Municipality of North Grenville is excited to participate in Communities in Bloom (CiB) Ontario starting in 2023, and for future years to come. Communities in Bloom is a non-profit charitable organization that focuses on improving the aesthetic appeal of communities and promote friendly competition between Canadian communities to beautify their civic spaces.

Communities in Bloom aims to promote civic pride, environmental responsibility, and beautification through community involvement and the use of green spaces. North Grenville is looking forward to showcasing our community, including heritage sites, gardens, and green spaces, through the creation of our profile book, and hosting the judges as they tour our community. Residents, businesses, and community groups are invited to take part in North Grenville’s submission into CiB by submitting photos to be used on the North Grenville website, for the creation of our profile book, and taking part in touring the beautiful landscapes and green space within the community to help support the initiative.

For more information about Communities in Bloom - Ontario, see their website here.

Judges Tour

August 14th-16th, 2023

A team of trained judges will visit the community to evaluate it based on a set of criteria once the season is in full bloom (this includes environmental action, floral designs, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape, and floral displays).



Following the evaluation, the judges will provide feedback to the community on areas that they excelled and areas that can be improved on, intending to help the community to continue and develop over time.


Community Rating


Based on the evaluation, communities may be awarded ratings from one to five blooms, five blooms being the highest rating. Communities may also be eligible for special awards based on specific criteria such as sustainability, biodiversity, or community involvement.
