We are In Bloom
In 2015, Newtown Square joined the national organization, America in Bloom, and has started its own chapter, Newtown Square in Bloom. In its first year of membership, Newtown Square was awarded a Special Award from America in Bloom for its Hanging Basket Container Displays and Special Mention for Heritage Preservation.
Newtown Square in Bloom seeks to:
• bolster civic pride through planting trees, bushes, and floral displays; as well as developing other environmental and lifestyle enhancements; • involve all aspects of Newtown Square communities including residents, businesses, municipal and non-profit entities in planting & beautifying Newtown Square; • strengthen our sense of community with volunteer participation from all different age populations from school age children to older adults.
We Participate in the National Awards Program
America in Bloom is a national awards program unlike any other. It celebrates quality of life in communities of all types and provides a framework for further progress. AIB celebrates and recognizes the great things our participants are doing to “plant pride” in America.
Newtown Square is grouped by population category which varies each year depending on the number of entries. America in Bloom sends a team of two specially trained judges to visit each entrant; spending up to two days touring with you, meeting leaders and volunteers while you showcase your efforts. The judges provide a detailed written evaluation rating our Township by six categories.
