Harmony Arboretum hosts garden contest

PESHTIGO, Wis.– How do creativity and recycling fit together in a garden setting?

A Garden Art Contest sponsored by Northern Lights Master Gardeners Association will highlight local talent at Harmony Arboretum Demonstration Garden. The contest calls for using recycled or upcycled items, or repurposing old, broken or unused items. It will coincide with an Art in the Garden event at Harmony Arboretum on Aug. 4 from 9 a.m. until noon.

Two entry categories allow adults and youth (age 15 and under) to enter and qualify for a prize as voted by participants attending the garden art program.

Advance entry registration is requested by July 25 and the entry must be delivered to Harmony Arboretum by 9:15 a.m. on Aug. 4, accompanied by an entry form. All entries will be displayed throughout Harmony Arboretum Demonstration Garden during the event.

Harmony Arboretum is located on County Highway E, Peshtigo.
