The Ascension Parish LSU AgCenter, along with the Ascension Master Gardener Association, will once again sponsor the Home Vegetable Garden Contest for 4-H youth. The Home Vegetable Garden Contest for adults has been postponed until fall. All youth vegetable gardens must contain at least four different types of vegetables. Judging is based on the following criteria: site selection, record keeping, apparent productivity, and weed, disease and insect pressure.
- Film a video (no more than three minutes) showing and describing your garden. You must state your name, grade, and school. Be sure to show at least four different types of vegetables and include any other important information about your garden.
- Scan any garden records into one file to be submitted. A word document is also acceptable.
- Email your video and records to MJSimoneaux@agcenter.lsu.edu during the week of April 20 – April 24, 2020.
- Title the subject line of the email, “Ascension Garden Contest FIRST AND LAST NAME”.
Visit the Ascension Parish 4-H Facebook page for examples and tips for filming your video. For more information email Horticulture Agent, Mariah Simoneaux, at MJSimoneaux@agcenter.LSU.edu.
