FGCVT EDUCATION POSTER COMPETITION
The Federated Garden Clubs of Vermont is inviting all local clubs to participate in a Horticulture Poster Contest.
As gardeners, we understand the importance of improving our environment through landscapes of plants, flowers, fruits, and vegetables. Federated Garden Club members of Vermont continually increase sustainable gardening making a greener future as well as beautifying communities in their work.
As you continue to learn we encourage you to participate in an opportunity to educate others by creating a horticulture poster and bringing it to the June 11, 2024, FGCV Annual meeting for display.
