Dartmouth Green Partnerships is the name for what used to be Dartmouth in Bloom. In February 2013 it was re-formed and re-launched and in November 2015 it became a charity.
The aim of the group is, in line with the Royal Horticultural Society’s guidance, to strive towards horticultural excellence, community involvement and environmental responsibility. The Committee shares its enthusiasm for these aims with all sections of the Dartmouth population, and helping create community spirit and civic pride.
Dartmouth Green Partnerships helps to bring the joy of plants and flowers to the people of the town and its many visitors, in conjunction with our fantastic team of Town Gardeners, and enthusiastic local businesses and residents. The planting in the town reflects the changing of the seasons and there are always interesting and beautiful plants to be seen. Examples of Dartmouth through the seasons will be found in the picture galleries.
We work together with local businesses, residents and of course the Town Gardeners to make the Town look as spectacular as possible. To this end we assist and encourage everyone to provide bright displays throughout the year.
We also work closely with the Town, South Hams District and Devon County councils to ensure that Dartmouth is always looking at its very best. This is achieved with help from local businesses and traders together with grants from the councils. The town relies heavily on the continued efforts of the Gardening Team, who go the extra mile in all weathers to ensure that Dartmouth looks its best at all times. Added to this is the dedicated Committee and the many Friends of Dartmouth in Bloom, who all give their time and support free. If you would like to become part of this joint effort, please contact us – we always welcome enthusiasm and help in any form.
All our income is invested in planting and the maintenance of the planting throughout the seasons.
