Junior Gardeners Competition

Event Details:

On July 27th, 2024, Laurentian Valley Township is hosting it’s 8th Annual Junior Gardeners contest at Stafford Park during the annual Party in the Park Event.  The competition provides youth the opportunity to choose either a flower or a vegetable to take home and nurture it for the summer. The contest highlights the township’s tagline “Grow with Us” and was chosen as a means of giving youth of the Township and neighbouring communities an opportunity to learn a new skill. Alastair Hugli of Sunset Nursery Garden Centre & Greenhouse is once again set to judge this year’s competition.
