Kitchener in Bloom


Through the Kitchener in Bloom (KIB) program, residents who go above and beyond to ‘pretty our city’ may have their public-facing gardens recognized. Each year the City of Kitchener encourages residents and business owners to take pride in, and contribute to the city’s visual appeal, by beautifying their properties through gardening.

 The Program

The KIB program celebrates the efforts of Kitchener citizens and business owners who help to make the city look beautiful. The goal is to:

  • recognize all varieties of public-facing gardens,

  • celebrate gardeners, and

  • foster community through gardening.

How to recognize a property


Nominations are now closed for the season. Check back in May for information about the 2019 nomination process.

All you have to do is provide the address of the property you wish to recognize!
