2022 Year of the Garden

LogoFlowers Sign

When asked what makes Qualicum Beach unique, people often mention the beautiful flowers that flourish throughout the town! In keeping with this, the Town will participate in the national 2022 Year of the Garden, and in the Communities in Bloom initiative under the non-competitive Friendship category.


  • Family Day on May 29 - themed ‘Qualicum Beach in Bloom”. Packets of seeds were handed out at the parade, and floats were colourfully decorated using the garden theme.
  • Communities in Bloom signage erected on Memorial Avenue, and on Highway 19A, displaying the various awards the Town has received throughout the years.
  • Rotary Friendship Garden - planting to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Rotary of Qualicum Beach Sunrise Society, and the 75th anniversary of the Qualicum Beach Volunteer Fire Department.
  • Eaglecrest Entry Garden Initiative - to be showcased at the Communities in Bloom Symposium in October 2022.
  • Recognition of local gardener Vern Black who received the "Garden Hero" award for his work in Eaglecrest Entry Garden Initiative, Eaglecrest Drive "Superbox", and his involvement in Broom Busters.

Both public and private gardens in Qualicum Beach have been showcased for many years through the Communities in Bloom program that celebrates excellence in community pride and quality of life. The Town has been fortunate to have been awarded many prizes over the years and looks forward to bringing its beautiful community into focus once again in 2022.
