Bloom Network on the look-out for people who feel inspired to build a beautiful and durable alternative to our current civilization. One way do this is through our Local Bloom Chapters. Local Bloom Chapters are groups of people in localised areas doing regeneration projects, specific to their local area needs/desires.

Many Blooms are established and looking for additional dedicated crew members to help with organizing and events. To find out if your area has an existing Bloom group already, click here. If you find one in your area, go ahead and contact them directly.

If there isn’t a Bloom in your area, and you’d like to start one, email newlocalbloom@gmail.com with a short message that you’re interested, and you’ll receive the information you need and the application form.

By joining with Bloom Network, you become part of a global community collaborating to raise awareness and enact healthy solutions to today’s problems.  The solutions are out there… all that is required is the collective will to make them more visible and blooming. Yes, bloom is a verb, the act of flourishing in a healthy garden.

 

What does a Bloom Chapter Do? 

 

Local Blooms are the foundation of Bloom Network. Local Blooms are people in towns and cities who have formed a functioning group to contribute to regenerative work at their local level. Our groups are diverse and we have Blooms producing things like festivals, regular community meet-ups, business incubators, mutual aid projects, film screenings, hands-on actions such as watershed restoration or front yard garden builds, and some chapters establish community centers such as tea houses, art galleries, or farms that host educational events.

Local Bloom chapters all over the world host events and actions to inspire their communities. Since the work is voluntary, activities are dependent on your team’s time and energy and specific to your local area needs/desires. Together we creatively support each other’s potential and our collective capacity for love and respectful connection.

 

What’s Involved in Starting a Bloom?

 

Starting a Bloom is a beautiful process of you getting to know your community, and your peers across Bloom Network getting to know you. It’s largely through consistent communication that your Bloom stays connected with the network – you’ll have access to many templates and peer knowledge to help you get started, and we ask that you post blog posts regularly to Bloom’s site to let the world know your inspiring works as well as any support you may need. Bloom operates a bit like a peer-to-peer incubation and distribution network. We create it together, for mutual benefit. If you are interested in starting a Bloom in your home town, contact newlocalbloom@gmail.com to start the conversation.
