Community In Bloom (CIB) Awards

Presented at the Singapore Garden Festival and Community Garden Festival on alternate years, the Community in Bloom (CIB) Awards recognise and reward gardening efforts of our local gardening groups.

The awards aim to motivate and encourage community gardeners to improve the standards of their gardens, and to continue to enjoy gardening as a fun and healthy activity. Through such efforts, the awards hope to promote a love for gardening to others in the community.

From 2020 onwards, the CIB Awards will be spread over two years – CIB Awards 2020 (Housing Estates) for community gardens in the public and private housing estates, and CIB Awards 2021 (Educational Institutions & Organisations) for community gardens in schools and organisations.

Judging Criteria

Judging will take place between February and April 2020. The judging criteria for the CIB Awards 2020 (Housing Estates) comprise the following: 

a) Garden Quality
The quality of the garden as a direct impact on how well it co-exists with its surroundings. A garden’s quality is measured by its aesthetics, housekeeping and standard of horticultural maintenance.

b) Level of Community Involvement & Inclusiveness

The consistent involvement of participants is the foundation of a sustainable community garden. Building links and networks with the larger community encourages the sharing of resources and strategies to foster community bonding and promote the love for gardening. 

c) Educational & Outreach Quality

Community gardens serve as engaging educational spaces with opportunities for a wide variety of audiences to learn about horticulture, sustainability, biodiversity and much more. 


Please email us at or contact your CIB Managers if you need further assistance.
