LB Islington includes Bloom in Corporate Plan

“In Islington, In Bloom has really been rising in prominence over the last year or so in the borough amongst senior Leaders. Members have seen first-hand how it brings people together through gardening, benefiting their health and wellbeing and reducing social isolation and that it is about so much more than who’s got the best front garden.
