Aumentando voluntarios que hablan español en Embellecimiento

Sullivan Renaissance ha contratado a una consultora bilingüe para estudiar la forma de aumentar la participación de voluntarios que hablan español en los programas de embellecimiento y desarrollo de la comunidad de Sullivan Renaissance, y ayudar a cultivar jardinería y habilidades hortícolas dentro de la comunidad hispana.

Be an America in Bloom Community...

...Or Just Look Like One!

Beautification Best Practices from Around the United States

“Lessons Learned from America in Bloom” will be the focus of a seminar on Wednesday, December 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the CVI Center in Liberty.

Sullivan Renaissance Horticultural Coordinator Diana K. Weiner will take participants on a photographic road trip to see what volunteers are doing to beautify their communities throughout the United States.

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. America in Bloom sponsors an annual nationwide competition and also provides one-on-one mentoring and evaluations with detailed recommendations to participating communities.

The America in Bloom program focuses in six areas: floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, heritage preservation and overall impression.

“Any one of our Sullivan County communities could find themselves a natural competitor in this program,” said Weiner, “And if there is an interest, Sullivan Renaissance would work with that community through a community development grant to cover the registration fee to participate.”

Staff from Sullivan Renaissance attended the 2014 America in Bloom symposium in Philadelphia, PA in October. As part of the seminar they will share their “top takeaways” and best practices learned.

The first five registered communities will receive a complimentary copy of the book “Ten Years of Best Ideas – From America in Bloom Towns and Cities” which offers 2000 best practices and photos of all the great ideas from participants in the program across the country. There will also be a door prize raffle of gardening items showcased during the 2014 America in Bloom Symposium.

Space is limited, pre-registration is requested. Refreshments will be provided. For more information or to register, please call 845-295-2445 or visit us on the web.

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