Amherst Island Blooms (AI Blooms) is a recognition program for any resident (whether permanent or seasonal) that encourages and rewards your efforts to beautify your gardens. By recognizing efforts spent on garden plantings, we hope to encourage residents to put some thought into how your individual efforts benefit this wonderful place we all call home. Whether you have beds, borders, containers or any combination thereof, it all counts!
Nominations open June 1st and close by July 15. The nomination can be from anyone and self-nomination is permitted. To fill out a nomination form, click HERE.
This initiative is for all islanders, no matter how green your thumbs might be! Plantings can be annual or perennial flowers, shrubs or trees, vegetables, fruit – it is totally up to the property owner. Emphasis is on participation!
AI Blooms recognition markers will be distributed in July.
We hope this gets your gardening ideas percolating. Additional details to come! To hear more about AI Blooms and join in the discussion, please tune into CJAI 101.3 FM on Monday mornings between 8:30-9:00 am.
