Posts Tagged ‘Communities in Bloom International’

Warwick, New York, USA was declared a winner in the 16th Edition of Communities In Bloom – International Challenge and received “5 Blooms”. This is quite an honor for this beautiful little village of Warwick, where people work together to beautify their community for its residents and their visitors.

Warwick in Bloom REPRESENTS THE US IN THE 2010 COMMUNITIES IN BLOOM INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

The International Challenge includes winners from different National programs (America in Bloom, Communities in Bloom, Britain in Bloom, Tidy Towns of Ireland, Japan in Bloom, Entente Florale and others). The program consists of communities receiving information and being evaluated by an international jury on the accomplishments of their entire community.

Communities are evaluated based on eight key criteria: Tidiness, Environmental Awareness, Community Involvement, Natural and Cultural Heritage Conservation, Urban Forestry, Landscaped Areas, Floral Displays, and Turf & Groundcovers. The International Challenge is organized by Communities in Bloom (CiB) in partnership with the participating National Programs.

I must say that as a resident of Warwick for the past 25 years, I continue to enjoy and appreciate all that Warwick stands for and all it has to offer.  Communities in Bloom/Warwick in Bloom is just one way to show how much the residents take pride in their surroundings and the place which they call home.
