Calling all gardeners! Showcase your skills and compete for cash prizes in the Annual Home Garden Contest! Learn more about what it takes to grow a garden and help transform your communities with your creations. The contest, open to residents of the Pottstown and Boyertown boroughs, is brought to you by the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation, MOSAIC Community Land Trust and Building a Better Boyertown. Registration for the 2018 contest opens this Monday, March 12!
Originating in Pottstown, the Home Garden Contest was started by MOSAIC in an effort to educate the community as to the many benefits of gardening as well as to beautify the borough. It has since grown to include the Borough of Boyertown and its mission is to encourage and support gardening for both beginners and experienced gardeners, as this contributes to the physical and mental health of residents all while promoting a sense of community.
Now in its sixth year, the contest continues to bring the communities of Boyertown and Pottstown together, sparking comradery between neighbors and filling our streets with creative and plentiful gardens. With six unique categories to choose from, there’s something for everyone including kids!
Join the fun and grow for it! Learn more and register by Friday, June 15 at www.homegardencontest.com.
