Communities in Bloom Programs and Projects

The Lambton Shores Committee has plenty of programs and projects on the go!  Check them out below:

Flower Colours

The 2021 colours are purples, pinks and whites. The community is encouraged to incorporate these colours in their gardens this year to create a unified look across Lambton Shores.

Our hanging baskets will include Supertunias in Royal Velvet and Bordeaux, Supertunia Mini Vista in Hot Pink, Alyssum in White Knight and Variegated Vinca Vine. Enjoy!

Adopt A Pot Flowers for 2021

Trash Bash

Each year on or around Earth Day, Lambton Shores Communities in Bloom hosts their annual trash bash - an initiative to clean up our neighbourhoods after winter. Everyone is encouraged to keep the initiative going throughout the year! If you see trash on the ground while you are out in your neighbourhood, pick it up and throw it in your trash receptacle. As always, please remember to continue practicing physical distancing and proper hygiene practices as recommended by Lambton Public Health.

Adopt-A-Pot or Plot

Adopters are responsible for watering, fertilizing, dead heading and weeding. Committee members are happy to provide advice where needed!

Look for them throughout our beautiful communities!

"Hope is Growing" Campaign

In addition to planting flowers in our themed colours, Lambton Shores Communities in Bloom encourages you to join in the Hope is Growing campaign and find a space to create a Hope Garden on
your property. 

Hope is Growing Campaign

Communities in Bloom Canada and its partners are working together to summon everyone across Canada, and beyond, to create Hope Gardens for 2021.

CiB is inviting you to join them in planting the seeds of hope in 2021. Across Canada and beyond, our goal is to see the land awash with gardens featuring yellow, the international colour of hope. Whether it’s flowers, fruits, shrubs or vegetables - just plant the seeds! From parks to playgrounds, front yards, back yards, balconies, baskets, boulevards, barrels and planters, wherever there’s an empty space to grow, there is room for a plant. Together we can, and we will, make this happen!

Community Gardens

Community gardens continue to thrive in Grand Bend, Port Franks and Forest.

Note: Community Gardens have been deemed an essential service by the Province of Ontario. It is imperative that we continue to practice physical distancing and use proper hygiene practices at the gardens to do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. Lambton Public Health has provided the following list of requirements for Community Gardens:
