Registration Form - please return to kpascoe@essatownship.on.ca 

We are encouraging residents of Essa to take part in this annual challange as a great way to give back to the Community and help our local food banks (Angus and Thornton Branches)

The competetion includes:

Grow a Row and Share A Row - Who can share the most produce from your "shared row"? Items from your shared row are to be donated to the Angus and Thornton foodbanks who will keep a running tally. The winner will be crowned Essa'a Top Gardener!

There will also be a prize for the gardener who grows the most unique and one of a kind fruit or vegetable!

We ask our competitors to share pictures of their garden as it blooms by e-mailing kpascoe@essatownship.on.ca - Pictures will be posted on our social media outlets along the way. We can't wait to see your gardens!

Also stay tuned for gardening tips and tricks from our local friends such as the NVCA!

The rules are easy:

  • Produce must be grown in your garden - not purchased!
  • All Yields must be recieved by either of the foodbanks no lateer than October 1, 2021.
  • And most importantly let's have some fun!!
