Show Your Bounty Contest

The 4th Annual Show Your Bounty contest begins on September 1st, 2017.

Show Your Bounty is an annual photo contest that celebrates local gardeners and their bounties of fruits, veggies, and flowers from the growing season.

What does bounty mean, you ask? Well…whatever it means to you! It could be sunflowers towering over your growing garden, or a cornucopia of your vegetable haul. Maybe it’s a homegrown meal shared among friends, or a puppy begging for a taste of your snap peas.
