Community Garden Awards

Annually, the committee selects three or four Vashon-Maury Island gardens of non-members to honor at the November awards banquet.  The gardens are recognized as examples of good or optimal horticulture practices.  These gardens must be maintained by the owner and may be either private or commercial gardens.  At the awards banquet, which is planned and put on by this committee, members and their guests view video and poster presentations of each garden, and a certificate is awarded to each garden. Additionally, the gardeners' outstanding efforts are recognized in the local media.
