We gathered at the Picton Library on Saturday, November 2nd to celebrate gardens and present the prizes to the winners of the 2019 Children Garden Awards. We were so impressed with the gardens these kids created, we loved their enthusiasm and their dedication to all the hard work they put into their gardens.
Master Gardener Marianne Malachowski spoke of the work that the Master Gardeners do in our community and presented the awards, she is shown here with the first place winner Kensey Koutroulides.
Susan Warrack addresses the audience of kids, parents, grand parents and friends. Susan and Sandy Goranson (left) were the CGA committee this year and we thank them for all the work they did to help the kids and make this project come alive – but we also know that Sandy and Susan had a lot of fun visiting the gardens and listening to the kids talk about what they were doing and what they saw in their gardens!
Thank you to all the children who participated in this year’s contest.
See you next year!
