The annual ‘Parish in Bloom’ event, a
hugely popular and well supported national floral competition, is held under the professional auspices of the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
After consultation with the RHS and counterpart groups a charity, known as Natural Jersey (NJ), has been set up with support and input from the Economic Development,Tourism, Sport and Culture Department.
The charity was born out of the transition of Jersey Tourism, a government department that traditionally sponsored and organised 'Parish in Bloom', to Visit Jersey whose primary role is to promote and market Jersey rather than to organise events.
The objectives of Natural Jersey are:
• To promote good horticultural, environmental and conservation practices in Jersey, and;
• To encourage increased community participation and passion in horticulture including the promotion of the annual competition run by the RHS known as 'Parish in Bloom'.
