2013 Lafourche Parish Garden Contest

The 2013 4-H Garden Contest was recently held and according to Donna Ayo, Lafourche Parish 4-H agent, "4-H'ers interested in participating needed to: select a site for their garden, make a plan on what crop they would grow, plant their garden, keep records and take pictures of their gardens' progress."

Ayo added, "Every garden was judged by a team of judges who traveled to each contestants home to view and evaluate what the 4-H'er had grown. The participants were also interviewed by the judges to determine their understanding of how to garden."
