About Brandon in Bloom

The mission of Brandon in Bloom is to inspire a sustainable approach to improving the quality of life and civic pride within our community through sustainable best practices in community involvement, environmental awareness, beautification, heritage preservation, education and networking. It is integral to engage the community- all ages, service groups, business, associations and private citizens- in a public spirited effort to succeed and be recognized.

Brandon in Bloom is integral to our City. Communities that look successful are most likely to be successful. Whether a community's specific goals are to increase tourism, generate new economic development or simply to build civic pride, the face presented to its citizens and others is a key factor in achieving those goals.
