Midland, MI - For immediate release - August 16, 2017 - Since its conception, The Children's Garden of Dow Gardens has been incorporating hardy (and delicious) All American Selection edibles into its whimsical landscape. The 2017 AAS Design challenge “Foodscaping: Interspersing Edibles in the Ornamental Garden" seemed like the perfect opportunity to kick things up a notch! During the competition, which begins during the winter planning season, AAS enthusiasts from around the nation compete for the highly-coveted title.
"We're thrilled to be competing this year!" commented Children's Garden Horticulturist, Melissa Eddy. "Our staff members have worked diligently on the design, care, and maintenance of the 30 varieties of AAS winners in our fully-organic display garden."
Furthering their goal, 84 families participated in 2017 The Dow Gardens Growin' Gardeners program, which allowed young children to grow and harvest their own AAS award-winning vegetables under the guidance of Dow Gardens staff members.
Winners will be announced during the month of October, 2017 and will receive national recognition via web and social media platforms.
