With over 45 entries, the three top prize winners were chosen based on their submitted photos which consisted of a variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, ornamental plant species and garden design. There were some really great photo entries and our judges had the tough job of choosing just three winners. Some of the highlights from the winning gardens included starting seeds indoors, organic methods, building covers for crop protection, soil amending (composting!), water conservation and seed saving, to name a few!  

Thanks to everyone who participated and we hope to see you all in the upcoming contest!  Should you have any questions, please contact Adam Rieu at 

Thanks to Grow and Gather for the generous grand prize donation!
