Edible Container Garden Show/Contest

Hey Toronto! Withrow Park Farmers’ Market is holding an Edible Container Garden Show/Contest this Saturday, August 8, 2009. The event goes from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

I’m going to be a judge so see you there!

Details from the Toronto Balconies Bloom website:

“Bring one to three containers in which you’ve planted edibles for show and tell! Containers of any kind are eligible, as long as at least 50% of the plant material is edible (either the whole plant or parts of it). What to grow is only limited by your imagination: grow a mini herb garden in a shoe, or an edible flower garden in an old car tire. If you can get it to the show without the use of a truck and a crane, the size is up to you.”

Please send your RSVP about entering the show to contact@torontobalconiesbloom.ca [I've been told that entries will be accepted right up to the start of the show.]

  1. Hey! I read a 400 page book this week! All while sitting very still. Heaven.

    I wish I was participating but the thought of dragging a container of plants and soil on my bike to the other side of the city in the wee hours of the morning… no….
