Venice, FL Wins National America in Bloom Award!

Top honors for the prestigious 2021 America in Bloom awards were announced Wednesday, September 29, 2021.

The City of Venice was the winner of the “Eye Popping Pots – Best use of Containers in the Landscape” Special Award! Venice has had an explosion of flowerpots and containers thanks to Venice Area Beautification Inc. (VABI) and the Venice in Bloom Team volunteers.  Since 2013, the city has gone from no flower displays to well over a hundred in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The initial efforts were to use ceramic pots at corners and crosswalks. After a couple years, it was decided to add multi-tier fountains as flower displays. These initially were placed at crosswalks but later expanded to parks and highly visible entry locations.  VABI plants year-round so we are continuously changing plants.  One of our goals is to give the public a lot of different looks maybe to help give them an idea of plants or color combinations.  We try in the pots to have different thrillers in the center. So many of these are one of a kind.

VABI Board is made up of 16 volunteers as board members and an Office Coordinator.
