Bruderheim is blossoming after a prestigious win in the 2017 Communities in Bloom contest.
The town received a "5 Blooms" rating and a special mention for Native and Fruit Tree Planting Partnerships at the International Symposium in Ottawa on Saturday (September 16).
The community also received an Outstanding Achievement Award for the Canadian Nursery and Landscape Association Environmental Action Award.
Bruderheim competed in the up to 4,500 category with Hanna, Valhalla Centre, Maple Creek (SK) and Windsor (NS).
The communities were judged on tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape and floral displays.
Judges Lucy Chang and Louise Dumouchel said in a statement that, "the community of Bruderheim has long recognized the importance and benefits of planting trees for improving the urban environment and enriching the quality of life of its inhabitants."
They also praised the 270 fruit-bearing trees that were planted in the municipal campground this summer.
