ASSINIBOIA - The Assiniboia Communities in Bloom committee sponsored a Best Garden Selection event, in conjunction with Scott’s Miracle Grow.
The event was a fun way to recognize gardeners in Assiniboia, who work so hard to make the town beautiful. The six categories were: front yard, back yard, container garden, yard makeover, vegetable garden, and flower garden.
The CiB committee announced a winner in each category, who will win a $30 coupon for Scott’s Miracle Grow soil, and fertilizer, a Best Garden selection sign for their yard.
The CiB committee would like to encourage everyone - business owners, and homeowners, as well - to pitch in by tidying up their own properties to get rid of weeds, trim overhanging branches, etc. This dry year seems to have encouraged weeds to flourish more than ever. Often residents forget about back alleys, but the weeds that grow in them, love to spread.
The Communities in Bloom group would like to say how much they love their little town, and enjoy “Planting Community Pride”. It’s a lot of hard work, but is so rewarding.
