Vote for a chance to win!
In 2018 we tried a new fun initiative – a Hanging Basket Challenge, which we are proud to say was the recipient of the
Award of Excellence
for Outstanding Promotional Event at 2018 Landscape Ontario’s Garden Centre Awards
. Due to the huge success of the Hanging Basket Challenge, we are once again running this unique fundraiser. Here’s how it works:
In early March, our employees designed and planted a 14” hanging basket each, using no more than 6 plants. Baskets are now filling out beautifully and starting to flower. Starting at our
Perennial Party on Sunday 5 May
, visitors to the farm can look over the 8 baskets and pay to vote for their favourites, with each vote being a chance to win the basket. There will be some free ballots given away at the event. We will continue the voting until
Sunday 26 May
when the votes will be tallied and the winning design will be announced. The winning basket designer will have bragging rights and also will choose a charity for the proceeds to be donated to. Last year, we raised over $1000 for the Alliston District Humane Society. A random draw will occur from all votes collected for each basket and a winner of each basket will be announced. The 8 basket designers are: Kieron, Dan, Kelly, Jacqueline, Cathy, Ben, Samm and Chris. We hope that you will participate in voting for a chance to win a beautiful hanging basket lovingly created by one of our fabulous employees!
