The goal of the Beautification team is to make Blackburn Hamlet an attractive and welcoming community. As we look ahead, we would like to broaden our goals for the beautification of Blackburn. We are always looking for volunteers to join our BCA Beautification Committee with new ideas (i.e., add lighting to these signs, expand our perennial gardens, create other flower projects such as hanging baskets along the main thoroughfares of Blackburn Hamlet, promote the existing City tree planting programs and neighborhood canopy regeneration projects, etc.,). There are so many magnificent gardens and gardeners in our neighborhood! Please consider joining us to help beautify our community! If you are interested in volunteering to beautify Blackburn with new ideas, please contact: beautification@blackburnhamlet.ca.
