The first year of the Black Mountain Home for Children Garden Project was truly a learning experience. The volunteers learned what grew well and what did not and that the crows’ appetite for corn seed was invincible. This year we are determined to “scare the crows” but we need your help.
Churches, youth groups, committees and individuals are invited to create the scariest scarecrow and enter it in the BMHC Garden Project Scare the Crows Contest. Scarecrows will be judged on originality, durability and effectiveness by Garden Project leaders. The winner(s) will be invited to the garden to harvest corn for their personal use.
Scarecrows may be delivered to the garden any Saturday between 9 and 11 am from March 24 – May 12. A Garden Project leader will take a picture of you and/or your group with your entry and will be pleased to give you a free tour of the garden.
