5 Categories. 20 Cash Prizes. In Both Boroughs

While the number of cash prizes we can award may be limited, the Home Garden
Contest benefits more than just the people who participate. Growing a home
garden also rewards loved ones, friends, neighbors, passersby–anyone, really, who
can take in the beauty, or bounty, of your garden. So thanks for playing a part in
enhancing our community. Good luck and good health.

Registration for the 2022 Home Garden Contest runs from April 29 to June 24.

Residents of Boyertown & Pottstown Boroughs are eligible to participate in one standard category in addition to the bonus category.
