An article on America in Bloom in the March issue of "The Costco Connection" (Page 45) talks about the nationwide beautification program and the benefits it can have on cities that participate in it. The article quotes grower and Costco member Dave Williams at Williams Nursery in Westfield, N.J., about how the program helps to improve communities. Westfield won the AIB 2010 Landscape Criteria award.
Over 170 communities in 38 states have participated in the program, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.
