Our member magazine

Beginning in September 2013, the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden launched a revitalized version of Bloom, its member publication. Now a quarterly, 32-page color magazine, each issue conveys the stories and messages of our new beginning as we expand and renovate our old facility into a new cultural institution. Borrowing extensively from the voices of the Botanical Garden family, Bloom is a valued and beloved member benefit, as well as a recipient of the 2014 Garden Writers Association Silver Award of Achievement and Gold Award for Best Trade Magazine. Take a look at these sample stories from some of our favorite issues.
