Description

Cliftonville in Bloom is an annual gardening competition that aims to encourage residents to use their horticultural skills to help the environment and improve the appearance and environment of our community.

The competition is organised by the GRASS residents group which is run entirely by volunteers living in Cliftonville. Entry to the competition is free with prizes awarded to the winners of categories that are intended to appeal to both experienced and novice gardeners. We also have an annual sunflower competiton to encourage gardening amongst children. Our focus at Cliftonville in Bloom is encourage pride in the environment, during the launch event we give away free plants and offer potting workshops to encourage everyone to get the skills to become green fingered! GRASS with its volunteers regularly come together to improve local green spaces and organise community garden clean up that benefit the whole community!

It's wonderful to see residents taking positive action to improve the area by taking part in Cliftonville in Bloom. Over the last few years we have found the amount of creativity and work that has gone into the competition gardens to be truly inspirational, and we congratulate all entrants.
