The Strathcona in Bloom Society (SIB) endeavors to beautify Strathcona County and Sherwood Park through the efforts of volunteers and County staff. We encourage the efforts of private homeowners and businesses as they help with this work.


Over 100 volunteers contribute their time and energy to SIB to deliver our key programs:

  • Community Flower Bed Planting – planting and maintaining flowerbeds across Sherwood Park
  • Front Yard Recognition Program – supporting the recognition of over 600 private yards for inspiring others with their gardens
  • Outdoor Spaces Program – supporting the recognition of 100 local business, non-profits etc. that beautify their surroundings.


We are grateful to have the support of so many in our community. Strathcona County for its direct financial support; local greenhouses for the discounts they offer to our programs; our volunteers and local businesses etc. that provide financial and other support. These strong community supporters are essential to our success.

Volunteer with Strathcona in Bloom

With over 100 volunteers, SIB is truly a volunteer driven organization. It is an opportunity to contribute to your community while making new friends and applying your knowledge and skills. Many of our volunteer roles are busiest during the May through September period — not surprising for a plant-oriented activity!! Others offer year-round opportunities. The latest volunteer opportunities will appear here.
