History. Horticulture. Holliston. • October 5–7, 2017

America in Bloom Symposium & Awards Celebration • Holliston, MA

Co-sponsored by Massachusetts Flower Growers’ Association


You are invited to join fellow MFGA members and others at a great time—the peak of fall color!

Holliston is a 5-Bloom AIB community steeped in rich New England traditions. The community has protected historic architecture, open spaces, and farms. The town you will see is reminiscent of the Holliston of yesterday—but with the flair of a contemporary Boston suburb. Over the past few years, America in Bloom has provided the tools to put the shine on this community. Flowers have built bridges between businesses, residents, and local organizations. The rail trail brings people together in the fresh, open air. The town plants pride with great horticulture, enchanting history, and big hearts.

This year, an exceptional line-up of educational sessions and tours have been planned. The Friday keynote presentation will kickoff the educational program by giving insight into the important role of historic preservation. The panel presentations will offer inspiration you can take home. There will be lots of time for networking with the Showcase of Innovation vendors as well as with fellow attendees. And, of course, lots of time to celebrate!

We hope that you will come and experience this unique part of Massachusetts. We can’t wait to share the History, Horticulture, and Heart of Holliston.
