We are so excited to announce that this summer City Blossoms was a recipient of the 2014 Mayor’s Sustainability Award, an annual recognition of individuals, businesses, and organizations for their environmental leadership and contributions to the District become the greenest, healthiest, and most livable city possible. Thank you to every kid, teen, adult and parent gardener that has been part of City Blossoms’ work.
We are City Blossoms
a non-profit organization working out of the Washington D.C. area dedicated to kid-driven, community engaging, creative green spaces.
City Blossoms began nine years ago as a volunteer project and has since evolved into a year-round program that includes consulting, curriculum development (with consideration for learning standards), and regular on-site workshops. To date, City Blossoms has worked with over 3000 children and youth in various gardening projects.
City Blossoms has designed a unique method of developing and managing robust green spaces where children and youth are engaged as the main cultivators. We specialize in an art-based, hands-on approach that emphasizes the strengths and unique qualities of each learning center. All City Blossoms projects are organic and designed to work with the local environment and community needs. We look forward to bringing City Blossoms to schools and learning centers all around the area and increasing children and youth awareness about caring for the environment and themselves.
