Dead­line to en­ter lo­cal gar­den­ing pro­gram loom­ing

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FEATURES -

Char­lot­te­town res­i­dents are re­minded that the dead­line for sub­mis­sions for the City of Char­lot­te­town’s Make Our Home­town Beau­ti­ful pro­gram is Mon­day, July 17.

The gar­den­ing pro­gram (formerly known as Make Char­lot­te­town Bloom) is de­signed to rec­og­nize those who main­tain build­ings and land­scapes within City lim­its. Busi­nesses and res­i­dents can self-nom­i­nate or nom­i­nate some­one else.

The cat­e­gories are com­mer­cial prop­er­ties, curb appeal, ed­i­ble gar­dens, gar­den­ing in small spa­ces, com­mu­nity en­gage­ment, chil­dren and youth gar­dens, birds and the bees, wa­ter wise gar­den and the Mayor’s Award. Each cat­e­gory will be judged on its unique fea­tures, va­ri­ety and color of flow­ers, de­sign and over­all aes­thet­ics. Ev­i­dence of en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly, sus­tain­able prac­tices will also be noted. En­trants are en­cour­aged to in­clude pho­tos or sto­ries to sup­port their sub­mis­sion.

The Mayor’s Award will be pre­sented by Char­lot­te­town Mayor Clif­ford Lee to the prop­erty owner who demon­strates the best over­all im­prove­ment to their home or grounds.

Vol­un­teer judges will be judg­ing all en­tries/prop­er­ties from July 29 un­til Au­gust 4. The awards will be pre­sented at the Make Our Home­town Beau­ti­ful Awards in Septem­ber.

Any­one in­ter­ested in be­ing a vol­un­teer judge can con­tact the City at 902-566-5548.

Sub­mis­sion forms can be picked up at City Hall (199 Queen Street). A dig­i­tal copy of the en­try form and cat­e­gory de­scrip­tions are avail­able on­line at www.char­lot­te­town.ca by click­ing on the Make Our Home­town Beau­ti­ful but­ton.
