Do you have a garden that celebrates your artistic and creative side? Do you love taking pictures in the garden where the lights, flowers, and atmosphere are just right for that perfect artsy photo? We want to see them!

STEP 1:

Get out there and get that picture of your garden that is artsy and creative. Your photo should do the following:

  • Celebrate the artsy side of gardening
  • Use available garden resources to get that artsy look: wildlife, statuary, or even ordinary garden junk can turn an ordinary photographic canvas into a work of art
  • Must be an original photo taken by you

STEP 2:

Submissions have closed as of July 30th, 2017.

STEP 3:

Once you have been notified that your picture has been uploaded, share our 2017 Garden Art Photo Contest Facebook Album with your family and friends so that they can like, share, and comment on your picture. We will also share the photographs with the Meadows Farms Facebook community as well for their reactions.

Every like, reaction, and share count as one vote, so keep checking in with your photo to see how it is performing.

Good luck! We're looking forward to seeing your creative side.
