Beauty and biodiversity.

Who We Are

We are a group of civic-minded MIssissauga residents who love gardening and want to do what we can to help the environment and promote community well-being. We became a not-for-profit  Ontario corporation, a Missisauga community organization, and developed the mission and goals of Blooming Boulevards in early 2019. After a highly successful three-year pilot program, we are now in our second phase: focused on growing our programs and activities to accomplish even more. 

Mission

We connect neighbourhoods to nature, providing a network of native habitat gardens and opportunities for inclusive community engagement, education, and collaboration.

 

Vision

Our vision is a city-wide environment that supports well-being for all of its inhabitants - wildlife and natural resources as well a people. We envision a city with a resilient, biodiverse ecosystem that fosters community engagement through meaningful interactions with nature.

Building Connections

 

We are creating networks of citywide habitat gardens that serve as a corridor for native pollinator population movement, fostering genetic diversity by enabling bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects to reach each other. 

We engage with residents, neighbourhood groups, community businesses and organizations, institutions, and our municipality in planning, installing, maintaining and promoting the gardens.

We propagate the plants we use for the habitat gardens, using seeds we collect locally. with written permission from landowners, using ethical native seed collection protocols established by Mississauga Parks and Forestry. 

Purposes 

 

  • To provide a public benefit to the community by conducting environmental projects designed to preserve and protect native flora and fauna and improve the urban environment.

  • To advance education through workshops and courses on the benefits of environmentally sustainable horticulture and landscaping, and ways of implementing the same.

  • To provide a public benefit through the promotion of local community initiatives designed to mitigate the impact of climate change and foster a resilient, biodiverse ecosystem while encouraging community engagement and pride. 

 

  • To advocate for and promote greater environmental awareness in both civic planning and society at large.
