by Bobby Blair
August 10, 2017

Holiston in Bloom members met Thursday night at the Holliston Historical Society. Plans being were cemented for visitors from across the country to tour Holliston as part of the 2017 America in Bloom Symposium; Holliston is this year's host. A tour of Holliston will take place on the afternoon of Saturday, October 7th with guests being feted to lunch at Goodwill Park. While the symposium attendees will be housed at the Sheraton Tara in Framingham they will have an opportunity to visit area sites such as Wellesley College, Boston, Elm Bank in Natick and Weston Nurseries in Hopkinton.

While Holliston decided to fore-go the judging competetion this year to concentrate on hosting the symposium, Holliston in Bloom has decided to host its own judging competition for the best garden, landscape and floral displays in town. The displays must be located to the front of a business or residence or town owned property. Three judges, one each from the Downtown Marigold Project, Holliston Garden Club and HIB will begin announcing at least ten overall winners in the coming weeks leading up to the National America in Bloom Symposium. Town residents are invited to nominate your favorite garden displays here in the comment section of this article.
