2017 Garden Contest

Calling all Ewing Gardeners!

It’s summer time and we love to be out in the garden at this time of the year, getting our hands in the dirt. From digging in the dirt of our garden beds and planters, to laboring in community garden plots, we are all engaging yet again in that most fulfilling pastime of growing our food and beautiful landscapes, all while growing a more beautiful community!  The Ewing Green Team, the West Trenton Garden Club and Ewing Girl Scout Troop #70138 hope that you will want to show off all the fruits of your labors and enter our first ever Ewing 2017 Garden Contest!   Please enter and show off all the beauty that you have labored so hard to create.  This contest is for amateur gardeners only, so don’t be put off, give it a try!

The contest is being run in conjunction with our Fall 2017 Garden Tour.  It is separate from the tour and you don’t have to participate in the tour to enter the contest.  We realize that not every gardener is confident or experienced enough to showcase their garden on a garden tour.  So, to encourage more homeowners to join in our beautification efforts we are running the Garden Contest.

We believe that growing gardens grows community!  We invite you to grow a greener Ewing along with us and show off all the beauty you have labored so hard to create.   This contest is for amateur gardeners only, so don’t be put off, give it a try!
