Children’s Flower and Vegetable Show
Time to think spring! 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 Monday, February 6, 2023. Please fill out the order form found here and mail to me along with a check made out to Holli Lantz 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 and tree seedling 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 plants.
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 get a free plant to take home and grow throughout the summer. Your child(ren) may also grow the seeds that you order and bring back the variety of plants they have grown for the homeschool show in September.
Our show will be held on Friday, September 8 at our home on the Southwest side of Fort Wayne.
Location – 14914 Powderhorn Road Fort Wayne, IN 46814
The city wide blue ribbon show will take place the following day, September 9, at McMillan Park Community Center. 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, PLEASE NOTE children older than 4th grade who have received a plant in past years and continued to care for them can bring them to our show and on to the city show.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (260) 438-8912 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Please complete the order form and get it mailed back as soon as possible. I will then place one order from our Fort Wayne homeschool group. Hope you can join us! —Blessings, Holli Lantz
