Celebrating Your Garden

The Black Mountain Beautification Committee would like to spotlight your garden. The 5th Annual Garden Contest featuring the Best Vegetable Garden and the Best Flower Garden begins now.

Is your garden blooming yet? Share photos of your flowers and vegetables. Take your photo to Mellie Mac’s Garden Shack and you may win a $50.00 gift certificate from the Black Mountain Beautification Committee to Mellie Mac’s Garden Shack.

Garden contest participants are limited to residents of Black Mountain and gardens need to have been created by the homeowner and not by a professional landscape company.

Submit 1 picture of your Vegetable or Flower Garden to Mellie Mac’s Garden Shack by July 6. On the back of your picture, include your name, address and phone number. Judging will be at the end of the end of the 2nd week of July.
