Mayor encouraging entries in Garden Contest for Kids

Ages five to 16 can submit photos of their gardens

Mayor Lois Jackson is encouraging children and teens in Delta to think green and participate in her annual Garden Contest for Kids.

Kids are encouraged to grow a garden this spring and summer, complete an entry form and submit it along with a date-stamped photo of the garden, any time between Aug. 1 and Sept. 10.

The contest is for those between the ages of five and 16 and is meant to encourage ways to be active outdoors and learn how to garden. Participants are urged to be creative - they can grow a balcony garden, container garden, patio garden or a vegetable garden.

Great prizes, including facility passes and parks, recreation and culture gift certificates, are available to be won.

Visit Delta's website at for more information and to download an entry form.

Forms are also available at any Delta recreation centre.

An entry form and photo must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Sept. 10.
