2014 Container Garden Contest

Over 20 K-5 classes or school clubs in Buncombe County and Asheville  participated in the 2014 Container Garden Contest sponsored by the Men’s Garden Club of Asheville.

Entries were judged on their creativity, amount of student effort involved, overall display and eye appeal, and young people’s presentation of the project to the judges.  Cash prizes and ribbons were awarded to classes and clubs that received Grand Prize, First Prize, Second prize or honorable mention rankings.
