With many of us spending more time at home this year, gardening has taken off all around the Tri-County area. In addition to the health benefits of gardening, the activity also promotes a sense of community. Gardening beautifies our communities, feeds our families and neighbors, and brings us all together around a shared love of all that grows. 

 

In this year’s Boyertown and Pottstown Home Garden Contest, 55 of those gardeners had their hard work rewarded, with top gardeners winning cash prizes and hand-painted flagstones. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and participants!

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.
