Want to get social, meet, and spend time with your neighbors? Parks and Rec hosts several community nominating events in the evening throughout the summer for folks to look for gardens to nominate together. We'd love for you to join us!

Find a Nominating Event

City staff and Ramsey County Master Gardener volunteers contact nominees and invite them to introduce us to their garden, share their gardening secrets, or tell us why they are a gardener. Their story may arrive in writing, in a video, or as a work of art. We celebrate all nominees online through social media posts and our website during the rest of the year.

You can view the full 2023 showcase on the Saint Paul Natural Resources Facebook page, or view highlights of the 2023 honorees.

Blooming Saint Paul Awards (2011-2019)

From 2011-2019 the Blooming Saint Paul Awards was a collaborative initiative between Saint Paul Parks and Recreation, the Saint Paul Garden Club, and the Ramsey County Master Gardeners. The program was presented by the Saint Paul Pioneer Press and the Capitol Region Watershed District. The Blooming Saint Paul Awards helped recognize residents and businesses who are dedicated to enhancing their local communities through landscaping. 

We recognized nominated gardens, trees or groups in seven different categories. Each category recognized the top three nominations with Golden Bloom, Silver Bloom, and Bronze Bloom awards.
