America in Bloom has announced the release of a 12-page, full color educational brochure titled, "Discover the Surprising Side of Plants." Based on research and publications by America in Bloom (AIB) board member Charles Hall, PhD, of Texas A&M and others, the brochure summarizes benefits of plants "beyond pretty" for people, communities, neighborhoods, and even offices. Illustrated with photos from many participating America in Bloom towns, the brochure concludes that "quality landscapes are a necessity, not a luxury."

A PowerPoint presentation based on the brochure is available for teachers to use in their curricula and for others to share in their own presentations.

The brochure will be offered to attendees at the AIB exhibit at the Philadelphia Flower Show, OFA’s Short Course and other venues. AIB sponsors at the gold or higher level are eligible to receive up to 500 complimentary copies. 

"This piece is an ideal promotional tool for nurseries and garden centers. We feel so strongly about the benefits of plants to the well-being of people, towns, and even the economy, that we are offering the printed brochure to interested parties at our cost, plus shipping," says Marvin Miller, AIB’s president.


To download the brochure and related presentation, go to www.americainbloom.org/discover_plants.aspx.
