EDMONTON'S FRONT YARDS ARE IN BLOOM
Spring is here, and we want to see your bloomin’ great yards! The Front Yards in Bloom program is all about recognizing neighbours who make an effort to beautify their front yards.
Front Yards in Bloom started in 1999, with 150 nominations in its first year. It is now the largest program of its kind in Canada. Last year, we received over 3,400 nominations city-wide. This year, our goal is to receive 3,700 nominations. Nominations can be submitted Wed May 20 – Tues June 30.
Front Yards can be nominated in one of four categories:
· General: Appealing front yards that makes people smile as they pass by! These yards could include a variety of colours, textures, plants, and garden features.
· Natural: Yards with a “natural” aesthetic, using native plants, and limited pesticides and herbicides.
· Edible: Yards incorporating edible fruits, flowers, and plants into the landscape design.
· Public Spaces (*New*): Yards with landscaping features and aesthetic appeal in front of a public building (including schools, businesses/offices, multi-unit residences, churches, and community league halls)
After the nomination deadline, volunteers deliver a sign and brochure to each nominated yard, and also choose some top yards for recognition. Edmonton Native Plant Group and Sustainable Food Edmonton judge the top Natural and Edible yards, respectively. Results will be announced during the Edmonton in Bloom Awards on August 12th at City Hall. Everyone is invited to attend the celebration!
It’s Easy to Nominate!
· Anyone can submit a nomination (no self-nominations, please)
. Nominations must be for a front yard or a yard visible by everyone.
· You can submit nominations via:
Online submission form: www.frontyardsinbloom.ca
Front Yards in Bloom is a partnership between the Edmonton Horticultural Society, the City of Edmonton, and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.

PRESIDENTS MESSAGE JUNE 2015
Hi everyone! Outdoor soccer and baseball have already started. We hope players, parents and volunteers are enjoying themselves. It's great to see our community fields active with games and practices.
Summer is almost here, school will be out and summer vacations will start. We have two lovely parks with playgrounds for our children to play in with the Green Shack programs operating for a half a day. The City of Edmonton also offers a wide variety of summer day camps and clubs. Call 311 for more information. Let's not forget all the summer festivals Edmonton is becoming so famous for... we hope your family enjoys many of them.
As you are driving through our neighbourhood, watch for children out playing or riding their bikes. Slow down and keep an eye out for them. Lets have a safe and happy summer.
Our community hall belongs to the community. Unfortunately, the walls have been targetted with graffiti and windows have been broken. It costs the community league money to remove and fix this vandalism. If you see any suspicious activity at the hall please contact the police.
We have the dates for our casino, November 7 and 8th. The funds from the casino help the community league provide activities for the commu ity and for upkeep of the building. Please contact our Casino Coordinator Nanci Cavill at 780-483-4105 or email her at email@example.com, for information on volunteer posisitons available. The gift of your time wil help our community greatly.
Have a great summer!
Kathy Katzenback - Aldergrove Community League President.
