It’s therapy for me.”
                                           - Suzanne Frain of Boyertown
In 2017, Suzanne won first place in the Bees & Butterflies garden category which came with a $200 cash prize. She said she really enjoys the peaceful environment of her garden especially after a stressful day.
“This was so much fun. We really enjoyed it.”
                                           - Laura Wright of Pottstown
Laura's daughter, 5-year-old Lily-Anne, came in 2nd place in 2018 for the junior garden category taking home $75. Laura said the contest was exactly the motivation they needed to start gardening as a family.
