Taking pride in our neighbourhoods

Camden in Bloom aims to encourage residents, businesses and community groups to take pride in their neighbourhood and create a more pleasant place to live and work. 

Everyone can contribute to a greener and cleaner Camden. 

Camden in Bloom 2022 is now open for entries

Councillor Adam Harrison, Cabinet Member for a Sustainable Camden said:

“Camden in Bloom is a well-established and fantastic competition which brings together residents, businesses and communities to celebrate the borough’s best outdoor spaces.

“The competition aims to celebrate the best gardens in the borough and encourage residents, businesses and community groups to create an even greener and more sustainable place to live.

“I would encourage everyone to get creative, enter the competition and share their photos with us.”

There are four separate categories this year:

  • Best community garden
  • Camden young gardener
  • Best mini garden. This could be a front garden, balcony or window box
