Morro Bay in Bloom is a charitable volunteer organization that is dedicated to the beautification of Morro Bay, using a national volunteer model that has transformed communities throughout America.

The model is simple: 1.)  Our planting, cleanup and maintenance activities last 2 hours. 2.)  Our weekly task goals are suited to the number of volunteers who participate. 3.)  Our tasks are varied to suit all abilities.

Morro Bay in Bloom’s community efforts include:

  • Landscaping public spaces
  • Tidiness and maintenance
  • Models of sensible plantings
  • Urban forestry
  • Floral displays
  • Environmental stewardship
  • Heritage awareness
  • Encouragement and support of public art

Morro Bay in Bloom is affiliated with America in Bloom, a national program that encourages civic beautification and enables communities to be evaluated on the following six criteria by accomplished professionals:  Landscaping public spaces, tidiness and maintenance, urban forestry, floral displays, environmental stewardship and heritage awareness.  The process of preparing a portfolio for the judges brings members of the community together.
