A call for nominations and Volunteer Judges brings the Hamilton Trillium Awards Program into full bloom

APRIL 1 2021

The original City of Hamilton release can be found here.

HAMILTON, ON – Beginning today, the City of Hamilton launched its call for Volunteer Judges and Trillium Award nominations, an award that promotes community pride by recognizing residents who contribute to a more attractive neighbourhood by landscaping and maintaining their garden.

Whether they are residential or commercial properties, all front yard gardens can be nominated as part of the program. Residents are encouraged to nominate any garden including their own if it appears worthy of a Trillium Award by June 15, 2021.

Nominated gardens have a chance at winning in a variety of categories including the White, Pink and Red Trillium Award.

Nominated gardens are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Curb appeal
  • Landscape maintenance
  • Landscape design principles and elements
  • Elements of design

Every year, the Hamilton Trillium Awards program is made possible by the volunteers who contribute their time to judge nominated gardens in Hamilton. Residents interested in becoming a Volunteer Judge will receive training on how to recognize award eligibility and are provided with the materials needed to select an award-winning garden.

This year, the nomination process, training sessions and committee meetings will occur virtually.
