Funding for this site has been provided in part through the Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program.
Since 2005, the Indian Head Communities in Bloom Committee (CiB) has been dedicated to enhancing the beauty of our community and fostering civic pride by participating in the national program. Each year communities are evaluated on their achievements in 6 key criteria –urban forestry, heritage conservation, environmental action, landscape, floral displays, and tidiness. The benefits of the program are experienced by residents and visitors alike. The final product is not only a beautiful, clean, eco-friendly place to work and live but also a sense of community spirit and accomplishment for all those involved.
CiB has been responsible for the purchasing, planting and on-going maintenance of the flowering baskets, containers and floral displays strategically located throughout the town, since its inception. We organize a community clean-up in early May, sweeping the town of the public areas and main thoroughfares. Early June sees a frenzied evening of planting up the containers and floral displays. In partnership with the Town, we work in the Community Orchard, plan and maintain special projects around town and collaborate with other community groups on their projects. We receive tremendous community support from residents who make a commitment to weed and water the garden beds all summer, and those who make a one week commitment to join our watering crew to ensure the baskets and planters are watered daily. Last year, these summer volunteers alone contributed 780 hours toward our grand total of 2,088 volunteer hours in 2017.
Help is always needed, and appreciated. For more information, please contact:
