Bloomin’ Good Gardens
Over the summer months, the Bloomin’ Good Garden Captains drive the numerous roads of our Township to scout for local residents with beautiful gardens. Our purpose is to recognize homeowners for their efforts in beautifying Oro-Medonte. Each recipient is presented with our Bloomin’ Good Garden sign and certificate of appreciation. The sign stays in their yard for two weeks. If you know of someone who deserves some garden recognition, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
