About Us

Founded by long-time Catskill resident, Shelly Pulver, Cultivate Catskill was created to transform Catskill, NY into the beautiful place we knew it could be.  As part of that mission, we participate in America in Bloom (AIB), a national awards program designed to help “Plant Pride in Communities”.

Over the past five years, America in Bloom has helped guide us toward a greener, greater Catskill.  Every year, a team of AIB judges tours the village, evaluating progress in six different categories, and making recommendations.  In the interim, we’re busy planning and planting more public areas, installing vibrant hanging baskets, filling containers with colorful flowers, and/or decorating for the seasons.  We also encourage residents to clean, paint and plant to help make Catskill all it can be.  And we couldn’t be prouder of what’s taken root!
