Goblins in the Garden by Sara Allen
Hunt County Master Gardeners are pleased to announce the 2014 “Goblins in the Garden” Contest for schools and youth organizations in the county. This event is being conducted along with the fall Art of Gardening Seminar, to be held in October in the Heritage Garden of Hunt County.
The entry process for the Goblin contest is easy. Groups should create a “Garden Goblin” using a fall garden theme. This could include scarecrows, pumpkins, owls, cats, bats, etc. Goblins should be made from mostly recycled items. Ideas include plastic milk jugs, flower pots, coke cans, buckets, etc. Creativity is valued as part of the contest!
Goblins need to be weather-proof as much as possible, as they will be on display for the public in the Heritage Garden from October 11-31. Groups should name their goblin and attach an 8”x10” laminated sign to it for display which includes the goblin name, school or organization. One entry per school or organization is allowed. Call, text, or email Master Gardener Charle Fox, by Oct. 1st to reserve a spot for your Goblin in the Heritage Garden. Contact information is: 903-246-1802 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deliver your Goblin to the Heritage Garden, 2311 Washington St., Greenville on Friday October 10 from 3-5 p.m. or Saturday October 11 from 9-11 a.m.
Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners. A “People’s Choice Award” will also be given.
