About Communities in Bloom
Communities in Bloom is a Canadian non-
Communities are invited to participate in the provincial or national editions, within their population category.
Benefits of participating in Communities in Bloom:
The Bruderheim Agricultural Society is proud to partner with Thiels Greenhouse, the Town of Bruderheim and Communities in Bloom to offer gardening workshops and opportunities to be involved in our community garden projects.
In 2016, we held our first “Dig N Dirt Day” event at Thiels Greenhouse. Residents from Bruderheim and surrounding area came to plant vegetable in raised planters utilized as additions to our Community Gardens Projects. The plants and soil were donated by Thiels Greenhouse and the raised planters were built by Mr. Smith, a senior who donated materials and time for this project. Residents from Bruderheim and surrounding area came to plant vegetable gardens in raised planters.
The Town of Bruderheim staff and the Bruderheim Ag Society volunteers took care of the watering and maintenance of the community gardens.
Residents in need utilized the food from the gardens and the excess vegetables were harvested and taken to the Lamont County Food Bank. The Royal Bank staff volunteered at this event and also donated $1000 to the Lamont County Food Bank.
Dig N Dirt Days event-
Communities participate with other communities in their population category within their province.
Provincial judges evaluate the communities on the eight program criteria, receive a “bloom rating” and are awarded this rating at a provincial awards ceremony in the fall.
To receive 5 blooms is the highest rating:
1 Bloom: up to 55 points
2 Blooms: 55-
3 Blooms: 64-
4 Blooms: 73-
5 Blooms: 82 points and more
“The objective for the Community of Gardeners Award is to recognize broad Community Involvement in gardening and horticulture projects. To qualify for this Award, involvement from all stakeholders within the community must be quite evident and a success factor of the municipality’s participation in Communities in Bloom. It must also demonstrate how best practices in horticulture are an important part of the community involvement initiatives”. ……by Scotts
Bruderheim Ag’s Tree Planting Project is possible with the generous funding by Shell Community Investment Resources. The majority of the work was done in Oct 2016-

Thank you and congratulations to all of our hard-
Your efforts paid off!
Our future is our youth and we are fortunate to have parents and grandparents involve their children in our CIB program and our tree planting efforts. We hope to pass on the tradition of proper gardening techniques for beautiful, healthy and high yield gardens.
The Bruderheim Agricultural Society is proud of the consistent partnerships with the following businesses and associations. Without their help, the above programming would not be as successful as they are, or even possible.
Kudos to our partners for all their assistance!
Thiels Greenhouses and the Bruderheim Ag Soc will be partnering again this year for gardening classes. Watch for these dates to be announced.
