History

Founded in 2001, America in Bloom is modeled after proven, successful programs around the world, particularly in Europe and Canada.

We offer a national awards program for communities of all kinds, including cities, towns, townships, college and university campuses, business districts, military installations and identified neighborhoods of large cities. The program provides a framework for improving the overall quality of life for participants.

America in Bloom is a community building program that engages people of all ages and demographics. It is the only program of its kind that provides on-site, one-on-one mentoring and coaching by a team of expert judges who provide a detailed, written evaluation.

Since our founding, more than 240 cities in 41 states have participated.

We also offer online, on-demand free webinars on a variety of topics and an annual educational symposium in a different city each year.
