'A Day in the Garden' for one lucky winner

March 18, 2004

For $1, you can have a chance to win a new yard - or a least a cleanup and restoration of your tired-from-winter one.

For $5, you can have six chances to win "Your Day in the Garden," four or five hours of yard labor from an enthusiastic and energetic volunteer crew of Hagerstown alumni.

The crew will prune, weed, clean up, mulch and plant according to a plan devised by Sandy Scott, retired horticulture consultant for the Maryland Cooperative Extension in Washington County. The winning landowner will provide the mulch, plants and seeds.

Scott and raffle winners from past years will be at the Flower & Garden Show Saturday, March 20, and Sunday, March 21, with photographic evidence of the crew's skill.

Raffle tickets will be available at the show.

There also will be a chance to win a handmade quilt - a star pattern in blue and white. Tickets cost $1 each or $5 for six.

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