Trial Gardens Competition: Each year the Garden Center invites local garden clubs to take part in their annual judged competition. Participating clubs must create their designs according to an annual theme selected by the previous year’s first place winner. The clubs plant and maintain their designs in an assigned plot, which is evaluated throughout the summer by three judges selected by the Garden Center. In September, members as well as the public are invited to attend the Annual Awards Tea, where the first, second and third place competition winners are announced.
2018 Theme: “Gardens Around the World.”
2018 Judges: Barry Burton, Paul Graebert and Sandra Richards
