and recognition for Deb Moore as our nominee for the National Community Champion award.
The Holliston in Bloom Committee is comprised of volunteers who have roots in local organizations including the Holliston Historical Society, Downtown Marigold Project, Holliston Garden Club, Holliston Lions, the Holliston Rail Trail, Pinecrest Golf Club, HCAT, Holliston Reporter, Agricultural Commission, 8 Arch Bridge Restoration, Community Farm, and more. We encourage everyone to get involved!
America in Bloom participants are evaluated on six criteria: overall impression, environmental awareness, heritage preservation, urban forestry, landscape, and floral displays. Additionally they are judged on their community involvement across municipal, residential, and commercial sectors. America in Bloom is the only national awards program that sends specially trained judges to personally visit participants and provide a detailed written evaluation that can be used as a guide to future improvements.
