Flower garden along front of house

From victory to vegetable gardens, pollinator patches to herb beds, Kitchener residents and businesses are making the most of their outdoor spaces this summer and we want to recognize them! Each year, Kitchener in Bloom recognizes residents and businesses whose front-facing gardens help to make our city a greener, more sustainable and more beautiful place to live.

“Kitchener in Bloom is much more than a garden showcase, it is a celebration of neighbourhood pride, environmental diversity, and of nature,” said Anne Ramsay, Kitchener in Bloom Committee Member.

“Whether you cultivate fruits and vegetables, plant perennials, or showcase bursts of annuals, gardens bring together families and neighbours. This year especially, we want you to look around and nominate the yards and garden plots that bring joy and sustainability to our community.”

We know gardens come in all shapes and sizes – and, whether you’re a new gardener or an experienced one, we’re celebrating all Kitchener residents who are doing their part to enhance their greenspaces and make our city a more vibrant place to live.

Is there a neighbour or local business in your neighbourhood whose garden deserves to be recognized? Show your appreciation and community pride by sharing their address with us by Sept. 3 at kitchener.ca/KIB so we can recognize their efforts.
