A Day in the Garden raffle

March 10, 2003

If you would like to have a beautiful yard without doing all the work, read on.

If you would like to have someone else do the work and have it cost you less than what you'd pay for a gallon of gasoline for your lawn mower, read further.

A team of HCC alumni volunteers will provide four hours of labor right in your back yard - or front yard.

They will clean, weed and plant your garden or yard. The team will do patio or porch pots, clean flower beds, plant annuals, mulch and lightly prune shrubs.


The team, under the direction of Sandy Scott, retired horticulture consultant for the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension in Washington County, will provide the labor, tools and knowledge.

Landowners provide the mulch, plants and seeds.

Scott and raffle winners from past years will be at the Flower & Garden Show Saturday, March 15, and Sunday, March 16, with photographic evidence of the crew's skill.

Tickets cost $1 each or $5 for six.

For information, call 301-790-2800, ext. 346.
