About America in Bloom – Decatur’s Celebration of Blooms
America in Bloom envisions communities across the country as welcoming and vibrant places to live, work, and play benefiting from colorful plants and trees; enjoying clean environments; celebrating heritage, and planting pride
America in Bloom promotes nationwide beautification through education and community involvement by
encouraging the use of flowers, plants, trees, and other environmental and lifestyle enhancements.
Participants experience better cooperation among municipal, commercial and residential sectors because everyone
works toward a common goal. They enjoy visible results. Via the national symposium and awards, they have
information and cultural exchanges with neighboring, national and international communities.
Be a part of the solution, Beautify Decatur still needs groups to help with litter clean up and landscaping
improvements along our corridor. Check the Beautify Decatur Facebook page for clean-up events, or contact Ellen
