Children’s Flower and Vegetable Show

Time to think spring....April showers and May flowers!

 

Start planning now to get your kids involved in planting seeds in flower beds and gardens this spring. You can order a variety of seeds for flowers, vegetables, and herbs right now. Orders are due Friday, February 6, 2021. Please fill out the order form found below and mail it along with a check for any seeds and such.

 

At the end of April, I will let you know that the seeds are available along with a free plant for your child in Kindergarten through 4th grade. You need not order seeds to participate, you can just sign your child(ren)up to receive the FREE plant.  Also any children in third grade will receive a free tree sapling.

 

For those who have never participated in the flower and vegetable show, it is open to all children in the Fort Wayne area, grades K through 4. All children who participate will get a free plant to take home and grow throughout the summer. Your child(ren) may grow the seeds that you ordered and bring back a variety of the things they have grown for the homeschool show in September.

 

Our show will be held on Friday, September 10 on the Southwest side of Fort Wayne. The city wide blue ribbon show will take place the following day at McMillan Park. Any of your child’s blue ribbon winners may be entered in the city-wide show. Your child may enter any plant, flower, or vegetable that was produced from the distributed plants and seeds. They can enter in any or all of the categories listed. Also, children older than 5th grade may bring back plants from previous years that they have continued to care for to be entered in our show.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (260) 438-8912 or hlantz9@comcast.net Please complete the order form in this newsletter and get it mailed back as soon as possible. I will then place one order from our Fort Wayne homeschool group.

 

Let’s get more homeschooling families involved this year! Hope you can join us! —Blessings, Holli Lantz
