Committee

The Kitchener in Bloom committee plans and implements a program that recognizes all varieties of public-facing gardens, celebrates gardeners, and fosters community through gardening.

Applications to join the committee for 2022 are now closed. Subscribe to this page to get an email when we start looking for 2023 committee members.


Recognize a property

Have you seen a home or property in Kitchener that's making the most of their green space? Celebrate their efforts by sharing their address with us! After you submit a property, we'll send them a Kitchener in Bloom lawn sign to display.

Submit an address

The deadline for submissions is Friday, September 16.

You can also submit a property (all you need is the address) by email or by calling 519-741-2200, ext. 7537.


Lawn signs

We will send lawn signs by mail starting in mid-May.

Add a property to the map

We’re appreciating gardens big and small that are helping to make our community a greener, more vibrant and sustainable place to live! If there a garden or other space you want to highlight for others in your neighbourhood? Add it to our map for others to visit and enjoy.

To ensure that a property gets a Kitchener in Bloom lawn sign, please also recognize the property.
