Suwanee scarecrow contest underway

By Staff
SUWANEE - The Harvest Farm Community Garden Managing Board in Suwanee is hosting its 3rd annual scarecrow competition.

Gardeners, residents, schools, and clubs are invited to participate.

Prizes will be awarded in the following categories: scariest, funniest, most creative, best scarecrow made by a child, and best scarecrow created from recycled materials.

Scarecrows may be placed at the garden between now and the end of the month. Place the scarecrows in your plot, or inside the perimeter of the fence if you don't have a plot. Judging will take place October 31, and winners will be contacted November 1.

Please attach the following information to your scarecrow: your name, email address, and phone number, preferably on a piece of paper that is inserted into a baggie to protect it from the elements.

Scarecrows will remain on display in the garden until November 30 when they may be picked up. Those that are not picked up, will be disposed of.

For more information, contact Kim Thompson at kimdthompson@bellsouth.net or 678/644-5793.
