Beautification Inspiration from Communities Around the US

November 24, 2014

[LIBERTY] – Sullivan County residents are invited to learn about what communities across the country are doing to beautify themselves, during a seminar on Wednesday, December 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty. 

Any one attending the seminar will be entered in a door prize raffle of gardening items showcased during the 2014 America in Bloom Symposium in Philadelphia.

Diana K. Weiner, Horticulture Coordinator for Sullivan Renaissance, has been an America in Bloom judge since 2002 and has mentored communities through the world.  At this seminar, she will explain how groups in the America in Bloom program focus on six areas: floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation and overall impression.  She will also use photographs to take participants on a trip across America to reveal inspiring lessons that can be brought to one’s own community.

Takeaways and best practices learned at the 2014 America in Bloom Symposium in October will also be shared.

America in Bloom is a nationally-based organization that promotes community beautification through the use of flowers, plants and trees.  Founded in 2002, the program was modeled after Communities in Bloom in Canada, as was Sullivan Renaissance.  It sponsors an annual nationwide competition and provides one-on-one mentoring and evaluations with detailed recommendations to participating communities.

Seminar space is limited, pre-registration is requested.  Refreshments will be provided.  For more information or to register, contact Sullivan Renaissance at or 845-295-2445.

Sullivan Renaissance is a beautification and community development program principally funded by the Gerry Foundation.
