Venice in Bloom is another one of VABI’s volunteer groups, and they have done some amazing things to make the downtown City of Venice an absolutely beautiful place to live, work and play.
Nominations to America in Bloom are submitted each year by VABI’s Venice in Bloom Team. In 2020, Venice received awards of community vitality, floral displays, landscaped areas, urban forestry, environmental efforts, celebration of heritage, and overalls.
Venice was the winner of the Coolest Downtown Award and the Outstanding Achievement Award for Landscape Areas.
Venice was the winner of the Eye-Popping Pots – Best Use of Containers in the Landscape (Sponsored by Crescent Garden).
This award looks for dramatic plant combinations using color, texture, and growth habit effectively. Numbers of planters and containers and uniformity of growth were considered. This award also looks for good choice of plants as well as overall dramatic effect with bold foliage and color.
Thank you again Venice in Bloom Team!
Always hard at work!
