Calling all gardeners who reside in the Pottstown or Boyertown Borough! Whether you're just starting out or are an experienced gardener, you could enter to win cash prizes for your garden and help beautify the neighborhood at the same time!
Brought to you by MOSAIC Community Land Trust, Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation and Building a Better Boyertown, the Home Garden Contest is open to both renters and home owners that reside within each borough. The mission is to encourage and support gardening for both beginner and experienced gardeners, as this contributes to the physical and mental health of residents and promotes a sense of community among the residents in the Pottstown and Boyertown Boroughs.
Participants will have six different categories to choose from upon entering:
- Junior Garden (Young adults age 18 and younger)
- Bees & Butterflies Garden
- "Everything But the Kitchen Sink" Garden
- Grocery Garden
- "A Lot with a Little" Garden
- General Garden
Beginning Monday, March 13, interested participants can register here and find category descriptions, contest rules and more! Get your green thumbs ready and discover the benefits of growing your own garden by joining in on the fun!
We look forward to seeing all of your hard work on display!
