Garden Club Books:
You will be provided a Garden Club Booklet along with your seeds in June. The cost of the seeds is $5.00. Your Garden Club Booklet is to help you learn more about gardening and to keep a record of your very own garden. So we recommend you work on this book throughout the summer as your garden grows. Your Gar-den Club book is to be displayed on your table with your produce at the fall fair. The judges will be looking for completion, neatness and a demonstration of your knowledge of growing your own garden.
If you lose or need a new Garden Club Bookor have any questions or concerns pertaining to garden club please contact Elaine at the email address below for a replacement book.
Garden judges will visit to look at your garden sometime in late August, or early September. They will be looking at your garden’s progress, layout, free of weeds, neatness, and awarding points. They will take this opportunity to meet with you and to ask questions about your garden. Pride of workmanship is important as well as your creative approaches to gardening. If you have any questions or require more information during the summer please contact Elaine at the provided email address or consult the internet which has a large amount of information and ideas for creatively growing various garden plants.
Garden Produce Display:
You will be required to set-up your school garden display at the fair on Tuesday Sept. 26th, 2016 between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm. More details on the location of the fair setup will be provided in the garden club booklet. Tables are supplied but you must bring your own tablecloth. Paper plates will be supplied and can be used for each display class. Flowers should be displayed in suitable vases of your choice, in water. Instructions for displaying your produce will be included in your Garden Club Booklet. You may decorate your table in any manner you choose, and points are awarded for the appearance of your display.
The total points scored in the competition include points earned from the judging of each garden, the garden booklet, and garden produce display at the fair. The points will be totaled and there will be trophies awarded to the overall top winners for each age group of the Garden Club. There will also be ribbons awarded for the first, second, and third place winners for each age group.
