CPA Streetscapes in Bloom Cabbagetown Front Garden Award years of winning front gardens!
Communities in Bloom (Canada) 1996 winning garden group Winchester Street In 1996, a cross-Canada competition called “Communities in Bloom" was initiated. The garden grouping from Winchester Street won a “designated site“ award as part of a local community project. These home owners are proud to have been a part of the competition, to have been nominated by appreciative neighbours, and to have won such an honour. Take a moment to enjoy their efforts. In 1997 the CPA began presenting the annual “Streetscapes in Bloom“ awards. The city of Toronto won for best capital city in the nation. A Brief history of the Award
