STATEWIDE – The Maine School Garden Network announces their first-ever children’s art contest, and invites all Maine youth entering 4th to 8th grade (ages 9-13) to enter a piece of original artwork. The contest is open to all Maine children who enjoy gardening, but we especially hope to reach kids who have been involved with school gardens, community gardens or other programs with youth gardening projects. The theme is “Gardens Grow Kids.” For more information go to our website, www.msgn.org.

Please visit our site to also learn more about the Maine School Garden Network, which is a group of committed individuals who believe in the value of teaching children to garden. Our mission is to promote and support educational gardens for youth, and to encourage school programs that teach healthy eating and environmental stewardship. The Maine School Garden Network is sponsored by the Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association and a grant from Maine Agriculture In the Classroom.
