The Municipality of Bluewater has entered the Provincial competition Communities in Bloom Program every year since 2010. The blooms ratings are: Five Blooms (2013 and 2014) and Four Blooms (2010, 2011 and 2012). The Committee is referred to as the Bluewater Blooms Committee.
Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on the promotion and value of green spaces in urban settings. The program consists of communities receiving information and being evaluated either provincially or nationally by a volunteer jury of trained professionals on the accomplishments of their entire community (municipal, private, corporate and institutional sectors, citizens) on eight key criteria.
Bluewater will participate with other communities in its population category, and be evaluated by CIB judges on the eight program criteria. Bloom ratings from 1 to 5 blooms (5 being the highest ranking) are awarded to participating communities at a provincial awards ceremony annually in the Fall. The program provides for two communities in each province to participate in the following year’s national edition.
