Congratulations Gloucester for receiving the America in Bloom awards for Outstanding Achievement in Flowers and Community Involvement!

America in Bloom in a non profit organization that supports the vibrancy of communities through beauty, pride in heritage and volunteerism. This is a national award that Gloucester earned based on the efforts of our community, city government and Generous Gardeners.

We hope you enjoy the city’s public gardens while taking the necessary steps to be safe for yourself and others. We are meeting the challenges of the current world while keeping to our mission. Our volunteers are actively caring for our gardens planting, weeding, and deadheading. We will be practicing social distancing while together so that we can continue our work beautifying the city.

Cape Ann’s beautiful natural environment and colorful seaside gardens perpetually inspire artists, designers, landscapers and now a growing community of civic-minded gardening enthusiasts.  As part of the seven million dollar seawall reconstruction project along Stacy Boulevard, numerous garden beds were installed and Gloucester’s volunteer group of Generous Gardeners planted them with thousands of colorful flowers. A riot of color is now enjoyed by all who stroll along the iconic boulevard. Generous Gardeners has also enhanced the rough charm of Gloucester’s working waterfront filling over 30 public spaces with beautiful bulbs, annuals and perennials. Contact Susan Kelly at susan@generousgardeners.org or 781-346-1363 to volunteer or learn more.
